This is becoming a regular in our house.
As we are off camping, I cooked this for our meal and made extra to have on Saturday night with friends.
To be sure I cooked enough, I made a large kebab meat.
I increased the portions x 4
2 x 500g lamb mince
1 x 500g chicken Mince
1 x 500g pork Mince

I increased all spices etc x 4 except for cayenne as I found it can ovrpowe so used 3 tsp only
I never altered the cooking time, left on low for 6 hours and nothing wrong with the feed at all
Plenty left over for freezer for another couple of meals.

I cooked this for the family. Used beef mince instead of lamb. It was a huge hit and there was enough for 2 nights. I was so pleased with this recipe I have another cooking right now. It will be sliced and frozen for nights when I need a quick dinner.

If I am using 1.5kgs of mince, do I need to alter the cooking time? And if so, by how much pls?

We tried this for the first time last night and it was great.
However, I did find that the cayenne pepper overpowered it a little so will use a little less next time IMO. (btw, I do love my spicy foods..)
If you like a kebab, then have a try of this one.
I used double mince etc so we having kebabs again tonight as well.

Lovely easy recipe. I wrapped mine in tin foil (actually I misread the instructions thatโ€™s why ๐Ÿ˜„) and it came out perfect. I love the bite of the cayenne pepper. It also freezes well.

Can this frozen after cooking. Thanks

This was delicious! Will def make again. I added teaspoon cumin and coriander as well. Rolled into egg shape and wrapped in plastic wrap and left in fridge for few hours then placed in slow cooker (without wrap) on bed of sliced onions to keep it dry. Ate in pocket bread with coleslaw type salad and sour cream and garlic aioli. Will make larger portion next time.
So easy to make. Thanks for a great recipe.

This was absolutely delicious. Maybe a little less cayenne pepper next time for my little one but perfect for us adults. We absolutely loved it

Great Recipe
I prepared this and left in fridge overnight (double recipe)
I put sliced onions on the bottom of the slow cooker and added the loaf straight on top.
Wrapped in foil after cooking and it turned out great.
I only used 1 teaspoon of cayenne pepper instead of 1.5 and I used Master Foods โ€˜Lamb Herbsโ€™ as the mixed herbs.
It was still quite hot but was balanced by adding the tzatziki, lettuce and tomato, I drained the onions and finished them off in the fry pan and added to the pita pocket

I’m confused about poeple asking whether it matters cooking it in foil and this has not been addressed in replies. The recipe quite clearly states wrapping it in foil AFTER it’s cooked. Was it ever worded differently?

My Family love this, I make up a huge amount and freeze them in vacuum seal bags as you can heat the in the sealed bag in hot water , while away camping .

Hi, does the pork kebab taste as good as the lamb one, as I only have pork mince in my fridge? Cheers.

Can it just be placed in slow cooker without being wrapped? Also can parchment paper be used to wrap it in or not? Thank you

Up to you ๐Ÿ™‚

I see this question has been asked before, but can I wrap in foil? Does it make a difference? TIA


November 3, 2017

Does anyone know if this would work as well with just lean pork mince?


August 2, 2017

I,ve made this using half beef and half pork mince, but then I add a knorr lamb stock cube dissolved in a little hot water, delicious


July 9, 2017

amazing! love this recipe I make this weekly great cheap and relatively healthy meal to feed a family

This tasted better than it looked.
I used a kilo of lamb and 2 teaspoons of cayenne pepper which was WAY too spicy for us and we like spice. I will try this again but will only use half the amount of cayenne pepper.


June 3, 2017

Does it hold its shape ok in the sc or is it best to cook it wrapped in foil?


March 7, 2017

Have used lamb mince, also used beef and pork mince, works well. I don’t use cayenne pepper, have only used Italian herbs as well.
Wrap in foil first then cook. 3hrs on high.
Use wraps with grated carrot, sliced tomato, tinned beetroot cubes, cheese, lettuce and sour cream with BBQ sauce
Lightly toast in sandwich press.. Yum!

February 6, 2017

Making this for the third time in my house, best recipe I’ve found for this and love that it’s in the slow cooker and I dnt have to worry about it !! Moxnit up stick it in and let it cook .. Served with low calorie chips and coleslaw amazing !!

Has anyone left it in the tin foil to cook in slow cooker? Does it make any difference if you do?


January 30, 2017

I was very surprised how nice this tasted. Did only add 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper, glad i did. Even my fussy hubby liked it.


January 14, 2017

This is so authentic and tasty. I have made it with minced beef too, it’s equally as good!


November 8, 2016

So after rolling in a loaf just put straight in sc with nothing at the bottom and not wrapped up in foil until after its cooked


July 6, 2016

It really upset me killing the lamb, but once cooked it was delicious. V hood recipe thanks.

This is to die for but do not put 1.5 of a teaspoon of cayenne pepper , i put 1 teaspoon to 1 kg of mince and it was still very spicey hot


June 3, 2016

Absolutely delicious. I must admit I was a little skeptical but this turned out beautifully. As I sliced it I still wasn’t overly impressed but once wrapped in pita bread with lettuce, onion, cheese and sauce then toasted it was superb!! Even my fussy kids enjoyed it.


June 3, 2016

Very easy recipe and a hit in our house with hubby and kids!
