Super easy and very flavourful!
I’m not a mint sauce lover so the next time I make it, it will be minus the mint sauce.

Really impressed with this one. I loved the flavour and we are not big lamb eaters in our house. I didn add the mint as we don’t stock / like it. I also only had 2 steaks so I added sausages for the kids and they enjoyed it.

This recipe is amazing, so easy, I dont use the mint sauce as neither of us like it, my partner loves loves it as do I.

You can yes. Others use cream of chicken also

Could I use creme of celery or asparagus soup instead as I am anaphylactic to mushrooms

Made lamb shanks with obsession sauce tonight, instead of the condensed mushrooms I used chicken as the husband is allergic to them and added in potatoes and carrots at the bottom and it turned out perfectly,the meat just fell off the bone and the sauce was delicious I did add in some cornflour to thicken sauce a little bit and my husband absolutely loved it and had it with fresh bread and butter. It was not salty at all and has now become a favourite for my husband as he would like me to make it again 🙂

Was a very simple recipe, and the flavors were really tasty. My mere male didn’t even know it had a mushroom soup base, winning!

Literally my favourite meal ever, i absolutely hate mushrooms and am an extremely fussy eater so I didn’t try this recipe for so so long.. it’s now pretty much a weekly meal in our house. And having it with shanks is 100x better! Thanks for the delicious recipe Paulene

Best ever!! My second try I substituted the mint sauce for cranberry jelly and it was so delicious. Probably one of my top 5.

We love mushrooms too and I sliced about half a punned into it – it was gorgeous!
Note to Laura, looking for an equivalent for UK, try looking for a South African shop, there are loads, you should find packet brown onion soup (same thing) there, or if there isn’t a SA shop near you, search online for “st marcus south african shop” – the brand will be either Royco or Maggie

I found with the whole packet of french onion pkt that it is too salty and over takes the flavour. I have since made it numerous times with about a 1/4 of the soup packet and it had been delicious. The mint jelly really makes this dish pop and brings it all together. It doesn’t taste like mushrooms but we love mushies so I always add fresh mushrooms to the mix. At times I put root vegetables in with the meat (works great with chicken, beef, lamb, goat, and kangaroo).
Once I reduced the salt from the soup, this had become a real favourite here.

Diced beef works great … so does chicken 🙂

My Son won’t eat anything with mushrooms, he doesn’t know the ingredients and really likes this, we have it at least once a month.
I was thinking about trying it with diced beef for something different.

I made this last week and followed the recipe exactly as was. It was really yummy, even my husband liked it who usually doesn’t care for slow cooked meals. I’ll definitely make this again soon.

Made this and turned it into pies. One of my favourite recipes. Always a hit!! Thankyou for creating it

Spelling error : Worcestershire sauce or shortened to Worcester Sauce
Trivia : A high court decided on 26 July 1876 that Lea & Perrins did not have the rights to the term Worcestershire sauce, and so the name is not trademarked. Lea & Perrins claims to be The Original & Genuine Worcestershire Sauce[ and may be the leading global brand of Worcestershire sauce, but other brands offer similar recipes. Some may be vegetarian or vegan, and may add other spices.

Made it again tonight. Hubby said it’s worth 6 gold 🌟’S.

Recipe Bang On
June 30, 2017
Did you mean you can find it in a powdered form soup? As that’s the right one 🙂
June 29, 2017
I am planning on doing this but wonders if anyone knew what the U.K. Alternative to French onion soup powder was as I have looked everywhere possible for this and can’t find it. I can find French onion soup in a cab ready made or powder for onion sauce. Thanks in advance e for your help!!!

This recipe is the bomb
June 23, 2017
Yum yum yum. Made 4 times so far. Hubby just loves it.

Made this a few days ago.
Beautiful. Added sliced mushrooms

Use these methods next time to reduce the fat prior to serving 🙂
How can I remove excess fat/oil from my slow cooker dish?
Not one I would do again, fat from the shanks made the sauce greasy and ruined the taste. After doing this recipe with Lamb chops which turned out awesome was quite dissapointed with this version.
September 27, 2016
This was delicious! I cooked on high for the first 2 hours and again for the last hour and the shanks were perfect. I didn’t add mint as I can’t stand it. This is a favourite of ours, sooooo good!
July 20, 2016
I accidentally added cream of chicken soup…… but it turned out beautiful anyway. I added whole small mushrooms in also.
June 20, 2016
I tried this however it ended up becoming a casserole because the lamb fell off the bones before I could even pick them up! I also added diced carrot and potatoes to the sc before covering the shanks and vegies in the sauce 🙂
