    I used a mixture of lamb and pork mince and it was instant hit with mates at a BBQ session....  -  24 Oct 2017


    Excellent! Finely chopped ingredients are a must-big chunks make the whole thing fall apart. Add bread crumbs to stiffen the mixture. Also put in freezer for a bit before grilling to make the skewers hold together. Don't leave on the grill for too long as they cook faster than you may think. Goes well with a nice ale.  -  08 Jun 2001  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This recipe is excellent. We love it! I made it twice - once using lamb and once using beef. We liked it both ways. Also, I made it in the oven instead of on a BBQ and was satisfied with the result.  -  17 Oct 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
