  1. 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.

  2. 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

  3. 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

  4. 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.

  5. 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 !!

  6. 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!

  7. 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.

  8. 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

  9. 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

  10. 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 .

  11. 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?

  12. 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 ‘Lamb Herbs’ 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

  13. 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

  14. 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.

    Made this the other night for my family and they loved it, My daughter who isn’t really into kebabs had 2, said they were delicious ??

  16. Lovely easy recipe. I wrapped mine in tin foil (actually I misread the instructions that’s why ?) and it came out perfect. I love the bite of the cayenne pepper. It also freezes well.

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. 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.
