    6 hrs 5 mins

  • Yields: 4-6


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

2Add onion

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 ๐Ÿ™‚

Today is the 3rd time Iโ€™ve made this in 2 weeks. I have used chicken, beef and lamb for tonight.. talk about obsessed my husband certainly is with this sauce!.


May 31, 2022

This is on the regular rotation at our house. A crowd favourite. I use beef or lamb, whatever I have in the freezer. I add baby potatoes and tinned champignons to bulk it up a bit. I often catch the teenagers or the husband mopping up the empty slow cooker bowl with a slice of bread and butter. It’s that good!

Some swap the cream of mushroom for cream of chicken instead in the tin ๐Ÿ™‚


May 30, 2022

Has anyone used dry packet of mushroom soup? I couldn’t find the tin at my supermarket. Thank you ๐Ÿ˜Œ


May 27, 2022

Easy to make and it only requires a few simple ingredients. So yummy and a family favourite!


May 22, 2022

This is soooo good!! Made it with blade roast instead of lamb and it turned out great!! Had enough left over for roast beef rolls for lunch the next day ๐Ÿ˜


May 4, 2022

This is our favourite. My daughter detests mushrooms but canโ€™t detect it in this recipe. I just shake the Worcestershire sauce to my liking (a lot) and add a whole jar of mint jelly. If there is left over lamb, I make shepherds pies. Never any waste here


May 3, 2022

Love love Lamb Obsession, I also converted it to Pork Obsession- I substitute the mint sauce and add about 100-200mil of apple sauce (about a baby food jar) my family love both. I use fore quarter chops in my lamb obs


April 15, 2022

Tried this for the first time. I don’t like mushrooms, but, couldn’t taste the mushroom soup.a total winner.will definitely be cooking lamb obsession again


April 6, 2022

Made for the first time. I did exactly as recipe stated.
Used 4 quarter lamb chops
Was impressed with flavour.

Lots of options HERE for you Rani ๐Ÿ™‚


March 21, 2022

Used this recipe for years although I will say this, if I don’t cut the fat off the lamb chops it always ends up coming out really oily, would anyone have any suggestions on how to go about this?

You know you’re on a winner when the young lads request this meal as their choice of birthday dinner, especially when they can choose anything, including takeaways. You cannot tell there is mushroom in this meal. Our go to meat for this dish is a big leg of lamb, plenty for seconds.


December 19, 2021

Made this for the first time. Used forequarter chops. Many compliments.

I made Lamb Obsession with lamb shank meat this week. The result was amazing, this is my favourite slow cooker recipe. I have printed it out and shared to lots of people and the feedback is great.

Thank you Pauline for the lamb obsession recipe. I used shank meat from Coles, so no bones๐Ÿค—

Being married to an Indian meant I had to up the spice game but instead of adding in additional spices, i threw in 2 red chillies. Everyone had seconds, even Mr 6 who declared: โ€œyouโ€™re the bestย  cooker, Mumโ€๐Ÿ˜œ

I added in a bag of baby spinach and served with polenta and cheesy cauliflower

Ps. clearly I couldnโ€™t wait to start devouring but then i opted to take a pic to thank you ๐Ÿ˜


August 14, 2021

I cooked a variation of this, using lamb shanks on a bed of onion, over which was sprinkled a teaspoon of fennel seeds. I also used cream of chicken soup, being unable to get cream of mushroom at the local store. I also omitted the mint sauce. It was cooked for 2 hours on high, then 6 hours on low. I was very pleased with the outcome – very, very tender meat and tasty sauce. I will be doing this again.


July 20, 2021

I tried reading the comments. So many! Have had it before and really enjoyed it. Wondering if anyone has had it with polenta. Trying to decide if i do polenta or mash


June 4, 2021

This meal was amazing the flavour and tenderness of the meat was absolutely beautiful this will definitely be a regular meal in my home ๐Ÿ‘Œ

Samantha Sheehan

June 1, 2021

Finally tried this recipe, and was definitely not disappointed! I was concerned it would be to salty, but it all works so well together. I used diced lamb and added in chunky cut carrots served with steamed broccolini and potato and sweet potato mash. I’ll definitely make it again


May 31, 2021

this was awesome the flavour amazing and meat so tender

sharon scanlon

May 26, 2021

I had this last night with osso bucco as that was what I had in the freezer I had it with penne it was yummy even my partner said it was very tasty and he does not like any thing stew like so it will stay on my menu the left over will be made into pies thank you for your recipe.

Tania Field

May 15, 2021

I made this tonight but didn’t have french onion soup mix so I used Dutch curry and rice soup mix with tumeric added to the mint sauce, worchestire sauce and water and poured over the lamb roast. OMG it was amazing…

Vicky Whyte

May 1, 2021

Hate mushrooms but hubby and son do so I reluctantly made this dish and waited til they tasted it first. Omitted the mint sauce but loved it. Will be making again. No mushroom taste at all


April 30, 2021

Really enjoyed it ๐Ÿ™‚


April 28, 2021

AMAZING!! So easy and sooooo delicious. We donโ€™t eat lamb so I used thin steaks cut into quite small pieces. Served with mash and veg. The little ones ate without a complaint (unheard of) and husband had seconds.
I followed the recipe and wouldnโ€™t change a thing.

Leisa Staunton

April 28, 2021

Just made this recipe using lamb shanks. I must say itโ€™s better than a restaurant meal. Delicious!!


April 26, 2021

Made the Lamb obsession roast again last night beautiful tender lamb falling off bone just relish great flavours donโ€™t change a thing. Family birthday dinner everyone loved it

Diced beef I would do around 5-6hrs Kayla ๐Ÿ™‚


April 19, 2021

Hi Paulene, If I did this with diced beef chunks how long should I cook for on low? Thank you.


April 8, 2021

What a great easy recipe!
I had leftover beef roast I wanted to use, and everything else in the pantry. I added carrots and potatoes, left out the mint as I did not have any.


March 5, 2021

100% worth the hype, so rich and delicious.


February 5, 2021

Made this purely based on all the reviews. Made it with chicken thighs instead of lamb and used Continentalโ€™s low salt French onion soup mix and no mint sauce. Turned out fine, sauce was quite mild in flavour, not salty. Wouldnโ€™t rave about it but nothing wrong with it either. Would make it again.

Jade Oakes

January 6, 2021

Have made this with sausages, really good. Tonight I made it with a 900g piece of beef, doubled the cream of mushroom soup and left out the mint sauce. Cooked on high for 3 hours then low on 2 (I put it on a bit late after sleeping in lol)- fell apart as I sliced it. Served with mash, roast carrots and potatoes. Mr โ€œIโ€™m so sickโ€ 13 decided he was well enough to eat and has cleaned his plate, Iโ€™m almost finished mine (rare for me to eat a full plate of food), and any leftovers (highly unlikely but will try lol) will be used in pies tomorrow. Amazing ๐ŸŒŸ


December 31, 2020

This was amazing for the whole family loved the sauce. It was not salty at all. One of my favourites.

This recipe is so moist & tasty Paulene. You are a magician with your recipes and have found this group so helpful, full of information & encouraging. Thank you all so much for the time & effort you put into keeping this site running.

Curley Deb

November 8, 2020

Thank you so much for this recipe Paulene is was just delicious, I made it with lamb four quarter chops, so yummy, I will be making this again for sure.

We have Sausage Obsession too but the sausages are definitely a saltier version I find than lamb – ? the salt in the sausages already
To further decrease salt use salt reduced soups for the recipe
Thirdly if you are extra sensitive to salt – pop a pealed raw potato in the pot in the final hour or so (it absorbs salt from the dish then discard the potato prior to serving)


November 5, 2020

I got a recipe that was exactly the same but with sausages instead. It was extremely salty, chucked it all out. Can anyone confirm if this is salty???

Bec Radford

November 2, 2020

Made this for the first time a few days ago and all my 6 children and husband loved it i added a little flour at the end to thicken up sauce and use diced lamb chops as I have youngsters and had sour cream and chive mash and vegetables on the side


October 19, 2020

Did with lamb shanks and was not a fan at all, very salty.. anyhow glad some enjoyed it

Jodie from QLD

September 24, 2020

Ok ok Iโ€™ve been doing a quite a few recipes off this wonderful site some have been hit and miss others are yeap thatโ€™s a keeper, well all this time Iโ€™ve been like โ€œIโ€™m sure Iโ€™ve tried the lamb obsession โ€œ and must not have liked it so thought I would try again and OMG nope Iโ€™ve never tried it and I am in absolute love this dish is absolutely my favorite now thank you slow cooker recipes xxxxx


September 5, 2020

As I don’t eat lamb, I made this with beef chunks.
Served on a creamy mash with a side of steamed carrots and green beans
I left out the mint and added mushrooms as we’re a family of mushroom lovers.

Every plate came back completely empty, it was phenomenal

Vickie Johnston

August 31, 2020

Iโ€™m cooking lamb obsession today with lamb shanks. Oh so good. Excellent go to recipe. ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ‘Œ

Margaret Anne Goodger

August 15, 2020

I made this recipe yesterday for the first time. It was delicious. Meat fell off the bone. Next time will do it with a leg of lamb. Too nice just for one night. Need leftovers for tomorrows dinner.


August 10, 2020

I am not a fan of red meat, but decided to give this a go. It was the best meal Iโ€™ve had in ages, will definitely be a regular in my house!

Lauren Spackman

July 20, 2020

Amazing, hubby loved it. We cooked it with beef and i did a side of the sweet potato mash featured in book 6 and some steamed broccoli..


July 20, 2020

Amazing! Whole family loved it. Doubled the recipe as Iโ€™ve got a hollow teenager and an equally hollow nearly teenager and it was perfect. Will definitely make again.

Kelly Mellross

July 4, 2020

This was delicious. Big hit with family. I used chuck steak and cream of chicken and corn soup.

Cream of chicken Bex


June 27, 2020

Hi is there any substitute for the mushroom soup as I’m allergic?


June 27, 2020

Loved this recipe. Hubby said tastes just like his mother makes. Such an easy dinner too. Will make sure it’s now added to our meal rotation. Also didn’t add the mint jelly only because we didn’t have any

Nicolle Maziarz

June 25, 2020

This was amazing, my son said wow after only a taste of the sauce!! I did 2 tins of the soup and 1pkt french onion and left out the mint sauce for the kids, but was perfect ๐Ÿ‘Œ definitely you g to be a regular!

Tara Crawford

June 22, 2020

I have seen people raving about this recipe for months, but I’m not much of a lamb lover. I found some cheap lamb chops, & of course, HAD to try this recipe! As I opened the cream of mushroom soup & watched it glug into the bowl, I didn’t have much hope. What was I cooking???? Boy was I surprised when I came home to an amazing smelling house. As I opened the slow cooker to have a look I could see a delicious, thick gravy on top of my super tender lamb chops. Definitely a winner!!

Debbie Benson

June 18, 2020

This recipe is amazing!!
I hate mushrooms and am not fussed on mint sauce……but this was ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS!!
The house smelt amazing all day and the family all went back for seconds!

Amanda Duck

June 18, 2020

The Lamb obsession is absolutely beautiful and the smell while it’s cooking is amazing and will diffentley cook it again


June 10, 2020

Made for the second time tonight. Made a few tweaks this time by doubling worcestshire sauce and mint jelly and adding mushrooms.

Jenny Zahra

June 8, 2020

I used lamb steaks, I omit the mint sauce only because it gives a tang that the sauce doesnโ€™t need.

Karen Atkins

June 8, 2020

First time I’ve made Lamb Obsession, love it. Omitted the mint as I’m not keen on it. Added a Gravox Brown Onion & Garlic packet at the end to thicken a bit.

Megan ann

June 4, 2020

I made this last night using lamb offcuts and without the mint sauce/jelly.

Omg YUM! Will make again. So easy and delicious.


June 3, 2020

I made the look lamb obsession tonight for the first time and definitely will be making it again it was yummo

Andrea Askraba

June 1, 2020

One of the recipes I am going to make again and again!
So easy to put together, let the slow cooker do all the job and it comes out so delicious!
Second helpings were made and plates polished off.
If you haven’t tried this recipe yet, I strongly suggest you do, perfect weather for it too! Brrr!


May 31, 2020

I made this the other night. I am the worlds most avid mushroom hater and I couldnโ€™t taste it. I used chops and the meat was just falling off the bone. My 9yr old and I loved it. Will be making again here too! ๐Ÿฅฐ๐Ÿ˜

Natalie Dodds

May 29, 2020

I finally tried this and I canโ€™t believe I didnโ€™t sooner! It was demolished by all and will definitely be made again. I used forequarter chops and the meat just fell off the bone. A great recipe for lamb that doesnโ€™t involved a tomato base. Huge thumbs up here!

Jen McLennan

May 27, 2020

I don’t eat much lamb, but got offcuts really cheap a couple of days ago. I was going to make a more rustic based recipe but then thought I would see what the raves were about as I had all the ingredients.. wow .. just wow. I used plain onion soup rather than french onion, I also added a heap of sliced fresh mushrooms so tender and delicious.. whoever created this should be so proud ๐Ÿ™‚

Karen Jordan

May 25, 2020

I made lamb obsession for the first time today. I now see why everyone raves about it – it was to die for. Myself and my 2 year old daughter devoured it. And the smell in the house while it was cooking only made it more enjoyable! ๐Ÿคค

Susan Kubenk

May 25, 2020

We had used a Beef Bolar roast for this recipe, and it was absolutely delicious. I hate mushrooms, but if you didn’t know they were in the recipe you wouldn’t know…

This recipe will work with 1-2kg of diced lamb Tezz ๐Ÿ™‚


May 18, 2020

Great recipe. Used a blade roast instead for 8 hours on low


May 18, 2020

Sorry if this has been asked, but if using diced lamb how much would I need?

Carla Johnson

May 17, 2020

This is my favourite slow cooker meal. The flavours of this meal are just incredible!


May 15, 2020

It was fantastic and had my husband raving about it. He canโ€™t wait for me to cook it again

Leanne Elton

May 14, 2020

This is my go to most talked about slow cooker meal, its SOO yummy an easy to put together!! You will not be disappointed if you cook this,if your at all concerned about the mushroom soup DONT, you cant taste it an you would not know itvwas in there unless you tell someone, I have to admit Im very heavy handed with the mint,but thats just my preference, please try will be blown away by SMELL,TASTE,an its simplicity to put together in a matter of minutes, great job Paulene

Donna Andrews

May 3, 2020

My first recipe from this page, it was delicious, very tasty and falling off the bone. My husband enjoyed it very much and licked the plate clean.
I left out the mint jelly as I don’t like even the slightest taste of mint. Can’t wait to try the next recipe.


May 2, 2020

Love it. Was going to do make pies with leftovers but no leftovers!


April 27, 2020

I am OBSESSED with this meal! I have it weekly by far the best meal ever and it was the first meal I ever cooked in my slow cooker.


April 26, 2020

Wow! Definitely happy I tried this! It was so delicious ๐Ÿคค

Heidi Krieger

April 20, 2020

Absolutely divine!


April 16, 2020

Absolutely delish. I would use half a packet of french onion soup mix next time as was a little rich. But loved it


March 1, 2020

Tried this recently, as a family of mushroom haters (me most especially) I was dubious, but it was so DELICIOUS and I’ve made it again several times since. Yummo.

sarah shearer

January 11, 2020

I wondered what the fuss was all about……OMG.
this is definitely in the work meals rotation now.

Liz Bugeja

January 3, 2020

Finally tried this recipe. It is so easy and so yum


December 11, 2019

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!).

Patricia Lawrence

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 ๐Ÿฅฐ๐Ÿฅฐ๐Ÿฅฐ


November 23, 2019

finally got around to trying the lamb obsession recipe!!! the first time i did it iโ€™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!!!!

Cheryl Ellem

September 18, 2019

Great, I will definitely make it again

Nadine Lovejoy

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?

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 ?

Elaine Bailey

July 27, 2019

Didn’t have any lamb. So use chuck beef. Did everything same. Beautiful. Even impressed the hubby.

yep you can ๐Ÿ™‚


June 29, 2019

Hey. Just made this. We do love the dish. Just wondering if it can freeze on its own?


June 29, 2019

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 donโ€™t like mushrooms and I can taste them through the dish.

Next time going to attempt this with a roast lamb


June 15, 2019

Iโ€™m not one for mushrooms but I tried this and canโ€™t even taste them:
I done this with a lamb roast . Was delicious

Jackie Raavel

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.

Skye Mozdzierz

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

Natalie Chellew

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!

Jane Walkinshaw

May 29, 2019

this is a wonderful site, and this lamb receipe is so loved in our house.

Jessica Doensen

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.

Hayley Wells

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. Iโ€™ve used forequarter chops, chops, leg of lamb and even lamb sausages. All are amazing. ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿผ
PS – Also yummy with Chicken Thighs (omit the mint sauce when using Chicken)

Sharon Robinson

April 3, 2019

This was not only delicious, but super easy. Hubby absolutely loved it too. It will be a regular here.

Karen Gray

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!!

Danielle Garrard

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.

Suzie Stares

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 ๐Ÿ˜‹โคโค

Kristie Bleeker

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! ๐Ÿ˜‹


September 23, 2018

Believe the hype!
Used 4 chump Chops cooked to the same measurements. Didnโ€™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.
Iโ€™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 isnโ€™t to obvious.

I double everything except the french onion soup for a double mix ๐Ÿ™‚


August 29, 2018

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?

Tania Mahoney

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!
Didnโ€™t put mint in? Though I love mint jelly so might try it next time.

Holly Gray

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.

Tarryn Kent

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

Katrina Attard

July 27, 2018

Hubby’s Fave converted him to lamb chops he never ate them before.

Brooke Harbour

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.

Tracy T

July 23, 2018

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

Use shanks, roast or diced lamb

Amanda Judd

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.

Ruth Wallis Gallagher

July 4, 2018

such a delicious meal, and sooo easy to prepare, thanks for a fab recipe โค๏ธ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป


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

Yes some folk use pork ๐Ÿ™‚


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.


June 26, 2018

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.

Tammy Noble

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

Kate Parker

June 18, 2018

Made this tonight, was amazing! No taste of mushroom and couldnโ€™t taste mint either. Was so easy and was wonderful with mashed potato.. Will definitely be doing it again ๐Ÿ‘

Donna M

June 18, 2018

Absolute favourite! I’ve used this recipe with lamb, beef and chicken thighs! Delicious!

Cloe Vuzem

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 ๐Ÿ™‚
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?

Kath Bowes

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

Sharon Flynn

June 7, 2018

Wow!! Just made this for dinner and it was amazing! Iโ€™d heard all the reviews and I was a doubter….I have always hated mushrooms (and so does the 9 year old) but you couldnโ€™t taste them at all! All 4 boys and my husband loved it!! Definitely going to have this again!

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 ๐Ÿ‘

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.

Naomie Lupton

May 27, 2018

It was absolutely delicious ๐Ÿ˜‹
I used diced gravey beef instead of lamb & left out the mint sauce..

Naomie Lupton

May 26, 2018

Omg so delicious ๐Ÿ˜‹


May 25, 2018

Oh I also didn’t put the mint in โ˜บ


May 25, 2018

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.


May 25, 2018

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.

Karen Davoren

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!!

Deborah Clarke

May 16, 2018

If I could give this extra stars I would. This is delicious. My entire family loved it from the picky Iโ€™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 canโ€™t believe Iโ€™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.

Alison Miller

May 6, 2018

First time Iโ€™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 Iโ€™m going to use diced beef. Master 7 gave it a thumbs up


May 6, 2018

Absolutely loved this. Was the first time Iโ€™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.

Nicola Oram

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 AWESOME๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ˜‹
I will say this is the best thing Iโ€™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)

Iโ€™ll definitely be making this again (with potatoes) and doubling recipe each time though as there was not enough leftovers ๐Ÿท๐Ÿ˜‚

*My changes: I used diced lamb, 3 potatoes (cut into 3cm cubes) & reduced salt French onion soup mix

Gabriella Byrne

April 30, 2018

This was delicious!! Made it with lamb steaks as I didnโ€™t have any chops ๐Ÿ™‚ added garlic and beef stock powder (not sure on quantities, just started dumping everything in ๐Ÿ˜‚)
Master 1.5 made happy grunts while literally shoving it into his mouth and then licked his plate clean.
I couldnโ€™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!

You sure can
Chicken too ๐Ÿ™‚


April 22, 2018

Can you use Beef instead of lamb.? And if so has anyone tried it and is it Yummy ๐Ÿ˜‹

Amanda Galvin

April 9, 2018

Cooked this for the first time yesterday and it will definitely be added as a regular but Iโ€™m now excited to try this with other meats. ๐Ÿ˜‹ sooo easy

Absolutely simple and delicious.. be sure to trim excess fat off lamb chops. A new family favourite ๐Ÿ˜

Steph Shaw

And another yummy one for all! Succulent melt in your mouth lamb with awesome flavours!

Jessica Bunt

March 21, 2018

So cheap ans easy!! and the most beautiful thing ive ever had! this with mash and bread ๐Ÿ˜


March 21, 2018

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.


March 21, 2018

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.

Rhiarn Thomson

March 20, 2018

This was absolutely Amazing!!

Ambre G

March 6, 2018

This was absolutely delicious, will be making many times in our house hold. Thank you for such a great recipe.

John Johns

March 4, 2018

First time making this. Wonโ€™t be the last. Absolutely Devine. Thank you Pauline

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 ๐Ÿ™‚

Emma Kett

February 3, 2018

Perfect meal even for the fussiest! Kids are it with ZERO complaints (thatโ€™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 ๐Ÿ™

You can if you like to ๐Ÿ™‚ Being lamb it is a fairly fatty meat … but here is some ways to REMOVE FAT AND OIL FROM SLOW COOKER DISH

Chelsea Duncan

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)?

Rongomai Mikara

September 24, 2017

Definitely a family favorite ๐Ÿ™‚
So delish ๐Ÿ‘Œ

Paulene @ Slow Cooker Central

September 12, 2017

I do anywhere between 1 – 1.5kg of meat usually ๐Ÿ™‚
But it could adapt to up to 2kg

Claire Lacey

September 11, 2017

How many grams of meat does this recipe require so I can know to adjust for different cuts of meat? Thanks ๐Ÿ™‚

Ann Noonan

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

Lisa Saragas

August 1, 2017

This is our family favourite dish ๐Ÿ˜€ 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 ๐Ÿ™‚ a must try

We have the Sausage Obsession version too ๐Ÿ™‚
I do often find sausages salty tasting when slow cooked so use salt reduced FO soup with those

Kelly Lockley

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

Jessica Hansen

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 ๐Ÿ™‚

Lesley Lohrey

June 21, 2017

Was yummy even the daughter loved it

Lesley Lohrey

June 21, 2017

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.

Fiona MacKenzie

June 18, 2017

Dinner Winner!
This is a definitely a must do again recipe.

It’s great with sausages too for a cheaper alternative ๐Ÿ™‚ 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 ๐Ÿ™‚
Or neck chops from butcher are often well priced too

Darren Comley

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 ๐Ÿ˜‚)

Raw is just fine ๐Ÿ™‚


June 5, 2017

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

Stephanie barlow

June 3, 2017

Sooo yummy and easy!

Sure can – I often do it with 10 or 12 neck chops

Megan Tebbutt

May 31, 2017

Could you use lamb neck chops for this recipe? TIA

Lauren Ormesher

May 17, 2017

Such a simple and tasty recipe! Definitely going to use this heaps ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

Tracey Thorpe

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. ๐Ÿ˜Š

LOVE this review! ๐Ÿ™‚

Georgie Genders

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!

Linda Evans

April 16, 2017

I want to do leg of lamb in slow cooker with this sauce.
Advice needed on cooking time please

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 ๐Ÿ™‚


April 14, 2017

Would there be an alternative to the cream of mushroom soup cause we have a mushroom allergy in our house.

Ellen Polomka

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.

Awwww best feedback ever! ๐Ÿ˜€

Becky Southam

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 ๐Ÿ™‚

Hi Leesa

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 ๐Ÿ™‚


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.

Cheryl Frappell

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 ๐Ÿ˜Š Crowd pleaser with my family, kids wanted seconds!!! Definatley be making it more often.

Steve Lord

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.

Talia Pershouse

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.

Rita Cotton Sharples

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

Jak Pearn

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

Noel Wells

September 24, 2016

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

Melissa Simpson

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.

Thanks for updating us ๐Ÿ™‚

Mega Seadramon

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. ๐Ÿ™‚ 10/10 from me.

Carley-Jean Fuller

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!

Nat Revell

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.

Belinda Walker

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 ๐Ÿ™‚ I just leave out the mint for anything other than lamb


July 15, 2016

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

Ashley Hogg

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 ๐Ÿ™‚ 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.


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 โ˜บ.

Linda Roberts

June 25, 2016

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

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 ๐Ÿ™‚
And cheap is usually just as good as expensive so don’t worry at all ๐Ÿ™‚

Donna Forrest

June 18, 2016

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.

hahaha that’s pretty awesome!!
First time I’ve read feedback put like that :))

Kylie Read

June 16, 2016

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

You sure can if you wish to ๐Ÿ™‚

Jason Anderson

June 7, 2016

Amazing! My wife and I both loved it. What more can I say? ๐Ÿ™‚


June 6, 2016

Hi All.
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?

Shaye Marks

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.

Ellen Polomka

June 3, 2016

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.

Amanda Armstrong

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?
Thank you!


May 29, 2016

Absolutely delish! Would definitely make it again…the family loved it.

Leeanne Henderson

May 29, 2016

have made it numerous times using lamb and beef and chicken delicious each time
I do add garlic and tin of vegetable


May 29, 2016

Made this and another hit in the sc but would serve with mash or potato back next time

sara busbridge

May 27, 2016

I am cooking this tonight it smells really good

Wow! ๐Ÿ™‚


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.

Kim Knol

May 24, 2016

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 ๐Ÿ™‚

Zoe Notman

May 19, 2016

I use the left over as a base for soup. Just add more water and vegies <3

Melissa Gillespie

May 16, 2016

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!

Melissa Azzopardi

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.

Sharni Krygger

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 ?

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 ๐Ÿ™‚
You won’t need to add anything extra though for fluids etc
I’d add them from the start


April 30, 2016

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

rebecca jessop

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


April 24, 2016

Has anyone done this with pork forequarter chops and subbed the mint sauce with some applesauce for example?

Selina Woodward

April 24, 2016

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!

Ally Armstrong

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

Ebonie Grigg

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 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.

jo barton

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 ๐Ÿ™‚ x

I’d pop carrots under or amongst the meat if large pieces and mushies on top ๐Ÿ™‚


March 21, 2016

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?

Lisa Soligo

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

So long as they aren’t packed in there too tight you should be fine ๐Ÿ™‚

Thanks! ๐Ÿ™‚

Jo Maxwell

March 13, 2016

Lives up to its reputation of being a favourite, I didn’t add the mint but this was awesome ?

First meal on slow cooker ever

Awesome! ๐Ÿ™‚

Geoff Hudson

March 11, 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? ๐Ÿ™‚ But you can’t really overcook it so 6hrs still won’t be a problem if that works for you ๐Ÿ™‚

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

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.

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.

You can cook it on high yes if you prefer ๐Ÿ™‚
Times will depend on your machine and the cut of lamb you use eg chops vs shanks etc

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?

Sure ๐Ÿ™‚
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 ๐Ÿ™‚

How can I remove excess fat/oil from my slow cooker dish?

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 ๐Ÿ™‚

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 ๐Ÿ™‚
Lucky for you there are 2114 other recipes you can choose from though that more be more to your taste lol
Enjoy ๐Ÿ™‚

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?

Whatever you have or what works for your family ๐Ÿ™‚
Anything from 500g to up to 1.5kg I think would still be plenty sauce enough

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.

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 ๐Ÿ™‚
