Australia produces a lot of lamb meat but lamb meat is quite expensive here. When my children were young and I was trying to prepare good meals inexpensively as we were having a tough time, minced meat was always a good option. I often made lamb skewers with this lamb meat mixture instead of making round patties, just for a better presentation to impress my children. I was a hard-working mum.
