6 hrs 5 mins
4-6 Lamb Chops (or you can use lamb shanks, roast, diced or any cut of lamb)
1 x 420g can Campbell's Condensed Cream of Mushroom Soup (no water added)
1 x 40g Packet French Onion Soup Mix (dry)
1-2 Tablespoons Worcestireshire Sauce
1 Tablespoon Mint Sauce or Mint Jelly
1 Onion diced
1Place lamb in slow cooker bowl
3Combine all other ingredients and pour over chops
4Cook on low for 6hrs approximately or up to 8hrs for a large lamb roast
7This does NOT taste like mushroom.
8Even seasoned mushroom haters have been fed this without knowing and not one has detected the mushroom yet!
9The mint is the mildest hint of flavour but if you really, really don't like it then just leave it out, it won't matter.
10This recipe can be used with lamb chops, lamb steaks, diced lamb, lamb shanks, roast lamb ... even with beef, sausages or chicken! It goes with EVERYTHING :)

I used venison rump chunks (Sambar) instead of lamb, I also added halved potatoes too!
Was beautiful – whole family enjoyed it (yes – you read correctly haha!).
November 28, 2019
I used lamb steaks to avoid the bone factor, served up with the usual suspect veges and it was a huge hit with my “fussy eating” family…
It has been requested I make a meat & potato pie out of the left overs 🥰🥰🥰
November 23, 2019
finally got around to trying the lamb obsession recipe!!! the first time i did it i’d forgotten to buy the french onion soup mix and i though it was the best but after trying it again…. with all the ingredients…. definitely became a fav in our house!!! the only thing i changed or should i say added is more mint jelly. i am a fan of lamb and mint and i felt like just a couple of tablespoons of mint was not enough. so once it was cooked, just before serving i added…. the rest of the jar of jelly!!! and it was beautiful. hubby went back for two more serve and my boy, fusy eater, went back for a second serve!! winner!!!!
September 18, 2019
Great, I will definitely make it again
August 22, 2019
Any ideas on how to make this gluten free? Campbells don’t appear to make gluten free soups, is there another product that can be used instead?
August 6, 2019
For chops I’d still go 4hrs even if high to cook well
August 1, 2019
Can you cook this on high?
How long for ?
July 27, 2019
Didn’t have any lamb. So use chuck beef. Did everything same. Beautiful. Even impressed the hubby.
June 30, 2019
yep you can 🙂
June 29, 2019
Hey. Just made this. We do love the dish. Just wondering if it can freeze on its own?
How long would you cook this on high for?
June 23, 2019
Big favourite in our house!!
Only change I do is substitute the mushroom soup for cream of chicken soup. As I really don’t like mushrooms and I can taste them through the dish.
Next time going to attempt this with a roast lamb
June 15, 2019
I’m not one for mushrooms but I tried this and can’t even taste them:
I done this with a lamb roast . Was delicious
June 14, 2019
I made this using gravy beef – I added some sliced mushrooms (which we love) and substituted mint sauce for horseradish. It was awesome.
June 13, 2019
Absolutely obsessed with this recipe, we have had it with forequarter chops, whole lamb leg roast , diced beef chunks. Then the other night we tried it with chicken. OMG it was amazing! Loved it so much. I did the sauce as usual and added the chicken breasts whole then near the end I took them out, shredded them and added back to the sauce. Served on mash as usual
May 31, 2019
This is my favourite SC recipe! We love mushrooms, so I add some chopped mushrooms in the last hour of cooking. I also add a peeled potato (to absorb some of the salt) in the last hour and throw out at the end. My only regret is not knowing about this recipe sooner!
May 29, 2019
this is a wonderful site, and this lamb receipe is so loved in our house.
May 24, 2019
Love it! Was hesitant to try but it really works. I used forquarter chops I picked upon the cheap and the meat fell off the bone. Will do again.
April 11, 2019
Yum yum yum had this tonight for the first time and it was absolutely delicious and now one of my favorites I used shank meat that had already been deboned and I added a little extra mint sauce probably half a tablespoon cos I like lots of mint sauce with my lamb definitely will be cooking this again
April 6, 2019
A fave in our house. I’ve used forequarter chops, chops, leg of lamb and even lamb sausages. All are amazing. 👌🏼
PS – Also yummy with Chicken Thighs (omit the mint sauce when using Chicken)
April 3, 2019
This was not only delicious, but super easy. Hubby absolutely loved it too. It will be a regular here.
February 13, 2019
First time making this house is smelling amazing had a sneaky taste of the sauce too as i am not a fan of tinned soups but must say cant wait for dinner!!
February 2, 2019
OMG simply amazing. Smelt so good (ok i admit it i had a taste test) I didnt want to wait while I made anything to go with it,so we made it into lamb rolls. I also added more mint jelly as we love it.
January 29, 2019
My partner and I love this dish.,made it many times. I dont add onions but always added mushrooms.
January 8, 2019
Personally found this extremely average. Was sad to have wasted perfectly good lamb. Not one person in the household thought it was worth the hype.
November 2, 2018
I cooked this with a 2.2kg roast lamb and put carrots under the roast they were yummo,then i thicked the sauce at the end with corn flour it was absolutely delish my kids licked there plates clean.
my 5 year old usually dosn’t
Like lamb but loved this 😋❤❤
September 27, 2018
Cooked this for the inlaws Sunday night. Was a HUGE hit. I doubled the recipe, and as we like, there was plenty of sauce to go around. Will definitely be cooking again! 😋
September 23, 2018
Believe the hype!
Used 4 chump Chops cooked to the same measurements. Didn’t add onion.
Love how thick and saucy the sauce is.
was cooked to perfection at 5 hr in a 3.5L russel Hobbs cooker.
I’ve never cooked cooked chops before and mr pig made a bold statement saying it the best chop dish his ever had –
Very flavours j and the mushroom and mint isn’t to obvious.
August 29, 2018
I double everything except the french onion soup for a double mix 🙂
Hi guys just put on with a boneless lamb leg 1.2kg. I find French onion packet super salty in cooking so I used salt reduced. Should I double the recipe for this size and use two soups and two salt reduced packets for extra gravy at the end? Or will it be too salty?
August 26, 2018
This is my favourite slow cook recipe, we also use it with beef minus the mint sauce ( I add a few extra shakes of worchestershire sauce) .
Whole family loves it
August 17, 2018
Used a lamb leg roast and shredded it at the end. It was delicious!
Didn’t put mint in? Though I love mint jelly so might try it next time.
July 30, 2018
My daughter is v vocal about her dislike for mushrooms and she also doesn’t usually like casserole. She went back for seconds for this and said Mum you should make this again soon! The 2nd time I made it I only had cream of chicken soup still worked out like a dream just a little saltier.
Thanks for sharing. a family fave now.
July 29, 2018
I don’t eat lamb but heard so many good things about this recipe I thought I would give it a try with Casserole Beef. Im so glad I did!! this is definitely a fave in my family, even my extremely fussy 5 year old says its her favourite meat! I followed the recipe but replaced Lamb with Beef and didn’t include the mint Jelly. Thankyou, SCC
July 27, 2018
Hubby’s Fave converted him to lamb chops he never ate them before.
July 23, 2018
This is one recipe we go back to again and again. It’s amazing! I don’t change anything coz we LOVE it just the way it is. Even my ‘I don’t eat casseroles’ daughter loves it and steals mine.
The Lamb obsession was absolutely beautiful, and so easy to make.
The kids and hubby ate it all so next time will have to make a bigger batch!
Thanks again for Easy and tasty recipes!
July 20, 2018
Very yummy, just needed a ittle corn flour added at the end to thicken the sauce. Everyone loved it
July 5, 2018
Use shanks, roast or diced lamb
July 4, 2018
Very successful, even hubby enjoyed it. I used heart smart lamb steaks, smashed roast potato, pumpkin , peas and carrots.
Will definately make again.
such a delicious meal, and sooo easy to prepare, thanks for a fab recipe ❤️👍🏻
June 30, 2018
It was ok I’d make it again I wouldn’t use chops as I hated finding the small bones annoying while eating
June 28, 2018
Yes some folk use pork 🙂
June 26, 2018
Had this on couscous with steamed veggies,
Was very nice and a hit with my 3 kids,
Will be making it again.
Yum! I kept reading reviews and comments raving how good this recipe is … and it did not disappoint. Omitted the mint sauce and it was delicious. Even satisfied hubby who hates mushrooms with a passion. Definitely a winner in this household.
June 25, 2018
Huge shout out to Pauline! Finally did Lamb Obsession today (did mine with boneless lamb rump steak)
I didn’t add mint sauce as none of us like it so didn’t think it was worth buying.
And I needed to use up some mushrooms, so I sliced and chucked them in too.
June 24, 2018
Oh boy!! What can i say, but its finger licking good. Amazing meal. Not a word was spoken during it. And you cant taste the mushroom.
June 22, 2018
Can I do this recipe with PORK FOREQUARTER CHOPS
June 18, 2018
Made this tonight, was amazing! No taste of mushroom and couldn’t taste mint either. Was so easy and was wonderful with mashed potato.. Will definitely be doing it again 👍
Absolute favourite! I’ve used this recipe with lamb, beef and chicken thighs! Delicious!
June 15, 2018
Was soooo yummy. You definitely cant taste any mushrooms. I left the mint out of it though. I do recommend maybe try using lamb that doesnt have bones as there are a bit annoying but definitely worth it. Yum yum yum
You could make your own 🙂
French Onion soup Mix
It’s a dry mix not the tinned soup variety
June 14, 2018
Cant find dry mix french onion soup in my shops… wat else can i use? Would a bit on tinned french onion soup be ok?
June 12, 2018
Absolutely delicious!!!! I doubled everything as I love gravy and had mashed potatoe and Yorkshire pudding with it…. Will be making again…
June 11, 2018
Made this for the first time today. It was so good I will Definately be makingit again
June 7, 2018
Wow!! Just made this for dinner and it was amazing! I’d heard all the reviews and I was a doubter….I have always hated mushrooms (and so does the 9 year old) but you couldn’t taste them at all! All 4 boys and my husband loved it!! Definitely going to have this again!
June 4, 2018
This is my absolute favourite slow cooker dish! So cheap, easy and full of flavour…. yum!! I used lamb shanks and the meat just fell off the bone. Highly recommended 👍
June 2, 2018
I have 4 lamb forequarter chops and don’t have enough time to cook for 6 – 7 hrs on low. Can I cook it on HIGH for 4 hrs ??
May 27, 2018
Amazing! Can’t wait to try with different meats.
It was absolutely delicious 😋
I used diced gravey beef instead of lamb & left out the mint sauce..
May 26, 2018
Omg so delicious 😋
May 25, 2018
Oh I also didn’t put the mint in ☺
Best meal ever! So easy, SO CHEAP!
I used chicken drumsticks instead of lamb. Added mushrooms and spinach. Then thickened cream for the last hour so it was beautiful and creamy.
I’ve made this twice in the last 10days… first time with lamb and added vege which I cooked as per direction’s. The second time was with Mutton and added potatoes, parsnip, carrot and garlic which I cooked on High for 4hrs. The mutton just fell off the bone and melted in the mouth. The flavour of the sauce was divine! Will be keeping the ingredients for the sauce stocked from now on and am looking forward to trying Goat Obsession and maybe even Pork Obsession in the future…
May 23, 2018
Yesterday I made this recipe but used pork forequarter cutlets instead of lamb and I left the mint out (I always leave the mint out anyway).
The verdict: I loved it. Soooo much less fat in the dish to contend with. The little bit of fat that there was, was easy to scoop off. The kids had different views. My daughter said it tasted weird and my son thought it tasted the same as lamb obsession.
I will make it again with pork. The biggest plus is the reduced fat content of the dish.
May 19, 2018
Yum, yum, yum. This was a hit! What little leftovers we had got demolished for breakfast. Had to thicken the sauce a little at the end. Will definitely make again. DIVINE!!
May 16, 2018
If I could give this extra stars I would. This is delicious. My entire family loved it from the picky I’m not eating that child to the will eat anything child. Suited them all ( I have 6, including the husband)
Yum yum yum
May 10, 2018
Made this using Angus beef steaks. Amazing!! Also added potatoes half way through. Love it!
May 7, 2018
I can’t believe I’ve taken so long to cook this recipe in my slow cooker. It was so quick and easy to prepare and the end result was absolutely delicious! This will become a regular in my household, especially in the winter months when you want that yummy comfort food.
May 6, 2018
First time I’ve tried making this one. I used lamb forequarter chops and instead of a tin of condensed mushroom soup used a jar of Coles Creamy Mushroom summer sauce. Was sooo good that next time I’m going to use diced beef. Master 7 gave it a thumbs up
Absolutely loved this. Was the first time I’ve tried making it. Used lamb forequarter chops and instead of the can of condensed mushroom soup used Coles brand creamy mushroom simmer sauce. Worked a treat. Master 7 gave it a thumbs up. Will be trying again but with diced beef.
May 3, 2018
Well what can I say. There was so much hype about this one so I had high expectations. So I made it and it exceeded my expectations. It was delicious. My husband almost licked the plate clean. I use diced lamb and now about half an hour before it finishes I chuck some asparagus on the top. It’s just divine. A regular on the menu now.
May 2, 2018
The rumours are true…
This dish is AWESOME👌🏼😋
I will say this is the best thing I’ve made in my slow cooker so far!
Melt in your mouth lamb and such a good flavour!
We love mushrooms in our house but I wanted to see if it was detectable to hubby…nope!
He was surprised when I told him the ingredients (so, as others have said – great for mushroom haters too)
I’ll definitely be making this again (with potatoes) and doubling recipe each time though as there was not enough leftovers 🐷😂
*My changes: I used diced lamb, 3 potatoes (cut into 3cm cubes) & reduced salt French onion soup mix
April 30, 2018
This was delicious!! Made it with lamb steaks as I didn’t have any chops 🙂 added garlic and beef stock powder (not sure on quantities, just started dumping everything in 😂)
Master 1.5 made happy grunts while literally shoving it into his mouth and then licked his plate clean.
I couldn’t get enough of the sauce and went back for 4ths so I could eat it with my potatoes.
Next time will probably use mushrooms and a cream based sauce instead of the condensed mushroom sauce as I did find it a little bit too sweet, and will add some cracked pepper while it cooks!
April 23, 2018
You sure can
Chicken too 🙂
April 22, 2018
Can you use Beef instead of lamb.? And if so has anyone tried it and is it Yummy 😋
April 9, 2018
Cooked this for the first time yesterday and it will definitely be added as a regular but I’m now excited to try this with other meats. 😋 sooo easy
April 6, 2018
Awesome will be regular on our meal list
Amazing – delicious – new family fav the lamb was sooo tender
April 3, 2018
Absolutely simple and delicious.. be sure to trim excess fat off lamb chops. A new family favourite 😁
March 28, 2018
And another yummy one for all! Succulent melt in your mouth lamb with awesome flavours!
March 21, 2018
So cheap ans easy!! and the most beautiful thing ive ever had! this with mash and bread 😍
Made this last week and OMG it is so good. The meat fell off the lamb leg and melted in your mouth. Also it doesn’t taste like mushrooms or really taste the mint flavour but the sauce is so good too. I chucked in a few vegetables as well along the way. This recipe has been added to my regular meals.
Excellent. I made it from the freezer dump bag and it worked great. Hubby really enjoyed it too but said he wouldn’t like it any sweeter.
March 20, 2018
This was absolutely Amazing!!
March 6, 2018
This was absolutely delicious, will be making many times in our house hold. Thank you for such a great recipe.
March 4, 2018
First time making this. Won’t be the last. Absolutely Devine. Thank you Pauline
February 5, 2018
If the salt was too much for your palate you can add a raw peeled potato to the pot in the last hour or two
It absorbs salt, then just discard it at the end 🙂
February 3, 2018
Perfect meal even for the fussiest! Kids are it with ZERO complaints (that’s unheard of here!) Cooks beautiful, tender, melt-in-your-mouth, fall-off-the-bone meat! Used forequarter chops.
February 2, 2018
Very, very salty.
Any suggestions on how to adjust the recipe?
Flavours were nice but the saltiness was overwhelming 🙁
October 19, 2017
You can if you like to 🙂 Being lamb it is a fairly fatty meat … but here is some ways to REMOVE FAT AND OIL FROM SLOW COOKER DISH
October 17, 2017
I’m looking forward to trying this recipe tomorrow. Should I trim some fat off my lamb chops (8 mid loin chops)?
September 24, 2017
Definitely a family favorite 🙂
So delish 👌
September 12, 2017
I do anywhere between 1 – 1.5kg of meat usually 🙂
But it could adapt to up to 2kg
September 11, 2017
How many grams of meat does this recipe require so I can know to adjust for different cuts of meat? Thanks 🙂
August 2, 2017
Love this recipe have made it with sausages as well delicious.
But today I realised that I didn’t have any mushroom soup and it’s an hour trip for me to the shops so I used a can of asparagus soup instead ….still yummy
August 1, 2017
This is our family favourite dish 😀 i do modify it a little, 45mins – 1hour before serving i add gravy. It thickens it up and gives abit more flavour!! Hubby loves it on bread rolls 🙂 a must try
July 21, 2017
We have the Sausage Obsession version too 🙂
I do often find sausages salty tasting when slow cooked so use salt reduced FO soup with those
July 18, 2017
Used sausages instead of lamb. Was quite salty compared to our usual food but still very very nice. Added broccoli & carrots towards to end and served with mash
July 17, 2017
I was a bit hesitant making this as was unsure how it would taste from the cream of mushroom soup but it was fantastic not an over powering mushroom taste at all a nice creamy sauce and soft lamb.
July 2, 2017
This dish would be number 4 in my first attempts with the slow cooker. It was so yummy! Hubby claimed the left overs by removing the bones from the lamb chops and dividing the leftovers in half, adding it to potato bake for 2 days of lunches at work. He is not a mushroom eater and all that was left in his bowl were bones! Thank you 🙂
June 21, 2017
Was yummy even the daughter loved it
Can’t wait for tea tonight, trying this for the first time will be interesting to see if the daughter can taste the mushroom soup.
I also used an extra tbsp of mint sauce.
June 18, 2017
This is a definitely a must do again recipe.
June 7, 2017
It’s great with sausages too for a cheaper alternative 🙂 I’ve even done it with mince
I’m Australian and I often wait until the lamb forequarter chops come on special and do it with them 🙂
Or neck chops from butcher are often well priced too
June 6, 2017
Very nice. I did this with good loin chops and stuck exactly to recipe. Initially I thought I’d overdone the mint sauce based on aroma and an early sneaky taste test, but I had nothing to worry about. I served with oven roasted potato, carrot and puimkin and the sauce makes the perfect gravy for those too. Will definitely do it again and definitely recommend it for others.
June 5, 2017
I loveeee this. My partner doesn’t though so it sucks, I would eat this once a week if I could (and if lamb wasn’t so expensive in Australia 😂)
Raw is just fine 🙂
Hi There, I’d like to try this tomorrow and one question – do you brown the lamb before or is it just raw when added with everything else? Thanks
June 3, 2017
Sooo yummy and easy!
June 2, 2017
Sure can – I often do it with 10 or 12 neck chops
May 31, 2017
Could you use lamb neck chops for this recipe? TIA
May 17, 2017
Such a simple and tasty recipe! Definitely going to use this heaps 😍😍
May 4, 2017
So simple…simply delicious.
Only thing I changed in the recipe was the meat. Used topside roast as hubby isn’t a fan of lamb. And he’s a HUGE lover of gravies/sauces and this recipe offers heaps.
The hint of mint was my personal favourite part.
Will become a regular meal in this house. 😊
April 26, 2017
LOVE this review! 🙂
April 25, 2017
I am honestly the fussiest eater you will ever meet. After 6+ months of being on the slow cooker central facebook page i finally decided to give this recipe a go. Can easily say it’s my absolute favourite meal now. So simple and delicious! Doesn’t take like mushrooms at all, you would be silly not to try this recipe!
April 17, 2017
Leg of Lamb with Obsession Sauce
April 16, 2017
I want to do leg of lamb in slow cooker with this sauce.
Advice needed on cooking time please
April 14, 2017
Any cream of style soup can be used. Cream of chicken is the most subtle of the flavour changes though others have used cream of asparagus or cream of celery etc also 🙂
Would there be an alternative to the cream of mushroom soup cause we have a mushroom allergy in our house.
April 13, 2017
We just love this recipe. Every time I buy lamb chops my husband always asks me to make this. Can I please ask can you do this with beef omitting the mint sauce.
April 8, 2017
Awwww best feedback ever! 😀
April 7, 2017
This is so far the greatest thing to come out of my slow cooker! Now I buy lamb whenever it is on special so I can make this. 12 year old and fussy toddler both love it! Thank you for a great recipe 🙂
April 3, 2017
If using chicken drop the cooking time down more like 4hrs
You can also use salt reduced french onion soup (and the mushroom if you can find that salt reduced too)
Another tip if towards the end you still feel it’s too salty you can place a pealed raw potato in the pot for the last hour to absorb salt then discard it before serving. Don’t judge the salt taste by the start but by closer to the end 🙂
March 30, 2017
How long would you cook it for if using chicken?
Going to try but am worried about the comments re: saltiness as we don’t eat much salt at all.
February 24, 2017
My family and I absolutely love this meal
February 23, 2017
This was amazing! My 3 girls loved it, even my fussy toddler who won’t eat much at all! Taste was great, very surprised you could not taste mushroom or mint sauce as no one in our house is very keen on either. Will be making this again for sure!!!!
January 30, 2017
This dish is absolutely sensational and so very simple 😊 Crowd pleaser with my family, kids wanted seconds!!! Definatley be making it more often.
January 21, 2017
First attempt at this dish, used 6 lamb leg chops and everything ad per recipe. Meat is literally falling of the bone and the taste of the gravy is awesome. Definitely one I’m going to be doing again.
January 6, 2017
This is our favourite! I always scoop off the oil and thicken with cornflour at the end . In the last two hours I chop up bacon and add it and it makes it even better! Sometimes I’ll add mushrooms too. It’s so saucy so I can easily cook 8 chops without doubling the sauce . The best thing about this recipe is I take the bones out and put the leftovers in the fridge . The next day I make Jaffles with it and they’re the best thing I’ve ever tasted! Everyone drools over them.
November 19, 2016
Made this today for the first time using lamb shanks ,also was first time using a tin of soup in a recipe ,we loved it .It was so easy ,I will defiantly make it again.Did this to the letter but I will add some carrots and potatoes next time to get that fab flavour into them..Thankyou
November 3, 2016
I’m going to try this next week changing a few things around as I’m allergic to mushrooms ….will use diced lamb and maybe low salt either tomato or cream of chicken soup ,, …..if using tomato will add heaps of fresh basil … chicken not sure yet ….sounds yummmm
November 1, 2016
My families Favourite in the house 🙂
September 26, 2016
this is amazing!!!! 100 points…
Thanks Noel! 🙂
September 24, 2016
Best recipe ever will tell all the family and friends about it but I added mushrooms
I made this for the first time last night and OMG it is the bomb I was walking around with the slow cooker bowl and bread getting out the last of the gravy ( I didn’t want to waste any lolol ) I did how ever add some mushrooms finely sliced as well and they added even more flavour awesome recipe would and will recommend it anybody
September 19, 2016
Made this tonight with a lamb shoulder, low for 7 hours, sauce was oily at first but soaked up the oil with bread and thickened the sauce with some cornflour. Definitely a winner at my house, husband requested it again and fussy children loved it
September 4, 2016
Had on high for the first half hour then turned down to low last 10-15 mins put up to high while the potatoes boiled and it had thickened up nicely
Meat fell of the bone
Kids 5 and 15 months enjoyed it
Me myself thought it was just an average meal nothing spectacular like everyone is saying
Will be a once in a blue moon type of meal in this household
September 1, 2016
I have made this a few times using the mini lamb roasts. I leave out the mint jelly and only use half a packet of the french onion soup as found it was too strong and salty, but otherwise ITS A WINNER in my house.
August 15, 2016
Thanks for updating us 🙂
August 14, 2016
I wish I could edit my earlier review. This is great. I have no idea what I did wrong the first time round but I have made it twice since then and both those times it was wonderful.
August 10, 2016
It tastes very delicious, I had not had mint sauce before but it tastes very nice with the lamb. 🙂 10/10 from me.
August 4, 2016
Absolutely love this recipe.
My “Picky” daughter and sister asked for seconds. Definately cooking this again.
July 30, 2016
Very yummy! Have cooked this using Lamb Shanks, Lamb Roast, and Lamb Shoulder Chops, and every time the meat is so tender, and delicious!
July 24, 2016
Delicious! Will be making this again!
July 20, 2016
I made this and the lamb was beautifully fall apart, melt in your mouth. The sauce was a good consistency. There was no mushroom flavour (although I like mushrooms, so that would not have been a problem). BUT it was insanely salty. Ridiculously so. I think the problem was a can of soup concentrate with nothing to water it down AND a packet of dry soup mix with nothing to water it down. The flavour had potential but the over-saltyness was really really really unpalatable.
Not sure what the solution is. I followed the recipe to a T.
July 15, 2016
Made this for the first time last night omg yummo ? and then put the remaining sauce in zip lock bags and put in the freezer for my next casserole base..
This includes more options for you too >> Removing Excess Fat/Oil from Slow Cooker Dishes
And yes it tastes great with chicken and beef too 🙂 I just leave out the mint for anything other than lamb
A-MAZ-ING!!!! First time I made this was with forequarter chops. I should have trimmed the fat as I found that it was pretty fatty on parts. A lamb shoulder roll is in the cooker today and next week I’m doing lamb shanks.
I think it would be beautiful with chicken too
July 5, 2016
Had this for dinner tonight and it was AMAZING! I would definitely do it again. Only thing i would change is the type of lamb. I used the forequarter chops. Next time i think ill just use lamb without a bone in it 🙂 lol
July 4, 2016
The whole family loved this! I used chops but am going to try with shanks as chops a bit fiddly to eat with it. Tip: need some nice fresh bread and butter to sop up the leftover sauce. Delicious ! doesn’t taste like mushroom.
Read here for all you need to know
July 3, 2016
I’ve used a shoulder roast and it’s extremely oily in the slow cooker. How can I absorb the oil?
July 1, 2016
That was the best shanks I’ve ever had SOOOOOOO TASTEY
June 26, 2016
I hate mushies, hubby loves them. Cooked this up and it was a winner, not mushroomy at all. In the to cook again list ☺.

A new family favourite. We didn’t add the mint jelly as we didn’t have any. Have also tried with beef and just as delicious. Little Mister 4 licked his plate clean…no fussy eater on this night. Thank you, thank you, thank you
June 24, 2016
My absolute favourite hands down
June 20, 2016
OMG, the best recipe, so tasty, couldnt get enough will be making this again for sure 🙂
June 19, 2016
OMG it was absolutely gorgeous, my husband is still slapping up the sauce with bread as I’m writing this, I have 3 kids who come to dinner at least once a week, and I will definitely be making this for them, they love slow cooked hearty meals with mash and vege, thank you again. ?

You don’t need a pressure cooker for any of our recipes!
We are slow cooking only 🙂
And cheap is usually just as good as expensive so don’t worry at all 🙂
Hi my daughter sent me this link, and I love all your recipes, just checking, I only have a cheep slow cooker from Kmart, like $40.00 the lid just sits on top, or do I need to by a proper pressure cooker, or more expensive slow cooker.
June 16, 2016
hahaha that’s pretty awesome!!
First time I’ve read feedback put like that :))
I made this last night using lamb rump steak, trimmed of all fat. OMG! It was unbelievable! The sauce was nice and thick and no fat. My friend who absolutely hates mint didn’t even know that was an ingredient. If I was served this in a restaurant I would ask to meet the chef lol. Delicious
June 8, 2016
You sure can if you wish to 🙂
June 7, 2016
Amazing! My wife and I both loved it. What more can I say? 🙂
June 6, 2016
I have a quick question (making this meal today). I usually don’t go for really salty dishes… oh I eat them, but then I suffer from thirst for the rest of the night. The worcest. sauce, tinned soup and French onion all have a good dose of salt in them. Has anyone used salt reduced tinned soup in the recipe? Has anyone found the meal over-salty?
June 3, 2016
Oh my god, what more can i say. This is absolutely delicious and my fussy 7yr old loved, loved, loved it. Thank you to the creative people that come up with these recipes, makes my cooking time so much easier.
Made this for tea on Wednesday night. Absolutely Beautiful. Husband loved it have to do it again. He also wants me to do a beef one.
June 2, 2016
To make this a ‘dump meal’, can you put the can of mushroom soup/french onion soup/etc in the zip lock bag and freeze or would you add these ingredients at the time of cooking?
May 29, 2016
Absolutely delish! Would definitely make it again…the family loved it.
have made it numerous times using lamb and beef and chicken delicious each time
I do add garlic and tin of vegetable
Made this and another hit in the sc but would serve with mash or potato back next time
May 27, 2016
I am cooking this tonight it smells really good
May 24, 2016
Cooked this tonight, using a lamb leg. Absolutely amazing. Hubby said it was his best meal this year. He didn’t leave any leftovers.
A staple in my house!! Trying it with beef tonight!!!
May 21, 2016
Made this one the other night and was really tasty. I think next time though I’d use diced lamb instead of lamb chops just to avoid bones. Definitely add it to your to make list 🙂
May 19, 2016
I use the left over as a base for soup. Just add more water and vegies <3
May 16, 2016
This is amazing the lamb was just so tender even my 7 month old loved this she just kept opening her mouth for more ☺️
Everyone in our house loves this one, even though there are things in it that each of us do not like. I don’t like lamb, my daughter doesn’t like mushroom and my husband doesn’t like french onion soup. It’s still an absolute winner in our house – even better as leftovers the next day (not that there are very many leftovers!). Yum!
May 12, 2016
Absolutely delicious! I didn’t put any mint sauce just because I didn’t have any. Still tastes amazing. This will become a regular dish in our household! Will try with veggies in the slow cooker too next time.
May 9, 2016
Absolutely amazing. I used BBQ Lamb Chops which fell apart and there was a lot of bone next time I will try a different cut but the taste was fantastic. Loved it!
May 4, 2016
Made this for the first time tonight (have only just started using my slowcooker) it was amazing had it on high for 4 hrs and added carrots and beans, recommend it to everyone ?
April 30, 2016
I personally don’t add my veg in with it due to the oily nature of lamb but I know plenty of others do so by all means if you want to – go for it 🙂
You won’t need to add anything extra though for fluids etc
I’d add them from the start
I’m really wanting to give this a go.
Can I add corrots to it? If so should I put the carrots in from the start or add them say half way through? Also if I added carrots would I need to add extra fluid like water or stock?cheers
April 28, 2016
Made extra so i could make a pie for the next night. Both beautiful. Both easy
April 27, 2016
I made this for the first time and it’s amazing my daugter is fussy and loved it and cheap to make is a bonus
April 24, 2016
very nice flavour..sauce made a better than average gravy..will make again next time i see cheap lamb
Has anyone done this with pork forequarter chops and subbed the mint sauce with some applesauce for example?
I thought this was amazing. So easy and delicious! I don’t eat mushrooms, but you can’t taste any at all. Will be a regular in our household!
April 22, 2016
Im the kind of person that eats with my eyes, and looked at this and didn’t think much of it….after everyone going on and on about it i thought i would finally give it a try….and the results did not disappoint.
I didnt have any french onion soup mix so used salt, pepper, sugar and beef stock….1 cube. and it was amazing!!!! My family all loved it. Will be making again.
April 20, 2016
Lamb shanks defrosting in fridge & planning for Friday night dinner with added vegetables (carrots & mushrooms). Hope this works as it be first time using my sc also. Sounds yummy. Will keep you posted
April 9, 2016
This recipe is awesome. I always add a full jar of mint and at least 4 tablespoons of Worcestershire sauce. Love the flavours. I make shepherds pies the next day with the leftovers……yum
April 5, 2016
Made this last night for the first time, it was absolutely beautiful, the whole household loved it, it will be a regular on our dinner menu. Thanks to Paulene for coming up with this creation and sharing it with us.
April 2, 2016
we cook this atleast once a month..works well with cheap beef cuts (gravy beef or chuck steak) yum yumm!
March 29, 2016
Didn’t hate it but won’t make again. Was super easy and lamb was cooked well but I didn’t enjoy it and there is no way my kids would eat it.
March 24, 2016
Tried this for the first time tonight and we all loved it clean plates all round I then told my partner I had used mushroom soup and he could not believe it I will definitely be doing this again and soon 🙂 x
March 21, 2016
I’d pop carrots under or amongst the meat if large pieces and mushies on top 🙂
I’m wanting to make this tonight and add veg (fresh mushrooms and carrots). Do you recommend I out it on top of the meat or under?
March 20, 2016
My non-lamb loving kids absolutely love this!!! Such an easy yet delicious recipe. I usually use lamb forequarter chops, trim the fat, chuck it in and go to work. Definitely a regular in our house
March 14, 2016
So long as they aren’t packed in there too tight you should be fine 🙂
March 13, 2016
Lives up to its reputation of being a favourite, I didn’t add the mint but this was awesome ?
I have a small Russell Hobbs slow cooker that fits 8 chops will it cook in 4hrs on high?lol hope so ?
March 11, 2016
Too easy, soo tasty. My wife loves it nearly as much as me.?
March 10, 2016
You would have a more watery sauce 😉
What happens if you add half cup of water :0??????
March 9, 2016
It was a hit with my boys Flavoursome meal
March 5, 2016
I find obsession loves and tolerates the long cooking time regardless with lamb but if you wanted it stopped earlier I would guess more like 4hrs would do it if it’s diced lamb? 🙂 But you can’t really overcook it so 6hrs still won’t be a problem if that works for you 🙂
March 2, 2016
This has got to be one of our favs it’s delicious, would it be ok to seal the chopped meat and still give 6hrs low? I’ve always put meat in raw before. Thanks
February 25, 2016
We make this dish on a regular basis – usually once a fortnight. We both love it and it’s super easy to make. Cheap too! You can buy the lamb when it’s on special and freeze it for when you want Lamb Obsession. 10/10 dish.
February 15, 2016
Love this dish! My husband ate his without taking a breath ?.
Will be a regular in our house now.
I used diced lamb & it was so tender & juicy. Such a quick & easy recipe too.
February 12, 2016
You can cook it on high yes if you prefer 🙂
Times will depend on your machine and the cut of lamb you use eg chops vs shanks etc
February 11, 2016
Just gorgeous. Everyone loved, even my fussy eldest child!
A quick question though – can I cook it on high, and if so how long for please?
Choose low sodium products
Add extra veg and fresh mushrooms if you like
Be sure to trim the fat from your lamb first and removed it from finished dish prior to serving
And serve it with healthy sides 🙂
How can I remove excess fat/oil from my slow cooker dish?
Healthy Options in your Slow Cooker blog
You can use any cream of soup but it’s true it won’t taste as good
However even seasoned mushroom haters swear they cannot taste the mushroom AT ALL in the finished dish 🙂
I guess the fuss as you call it is because sooooooo many people love this dish so talk every day about how much they love it on our group 🙂
Lucky for you there are 2114 other recipes you can choose from though that more be more to your taste lol
February 10, 2016
I d t eat mushrooms at all is there something else I can use to replace or would that ruin he dish
February 9, 2016
I’m just so confused. With all the fuss I can’t say there was anything that exciting about this. Why mushroom soup, why the French onion soup mix, why the sauces… Just tasted like any old gravy and lamb.
is there a way to substitute and make it a little healthier?
January 21, 2016
Whatever you have or what works for your family 🙂
Anything from 500g to up to 1.5kg I think would still be plenty sauce enough
hi it says 4-6 chops could someone please let me know how much diced lamb i would use instead would i need 1kg thanks
January 16, 2016
Delicious!!!! Best lamb ever
January 10, 2016
I got the Slow Cooker for Families book for Christmas and saw that the Lamb Obsession recipe was there. Having noticed on the Facebook page that people raved about this recipe I thought I’d give it a go tonight. On the first bite my husband said ‘Oh yum.’ We can see what everyone was talking about now. We’ll definitely be making this one again. And my husband cleaned up the leftover sauce with a spoon straight out of the slow cooker insert.
January 7, 2016
New to slow cooking & decided to give this a go tonight, it was amaazzinggg !! New fave dish !
Most delicious and mouth watering lamb dish i have ever made. I mixed it up a little and added fresh sliced mushrooms and a little of rich gravy powder towards the end to thicken. Will definitely be making this again very soon 🙂
January 3, 2016
All time favourite. Love it.
November 14, 2015
A new family favourite dinner!
November 12, 2015

November 11, 2015
