      Trust an Aussie to know what to do with ground lamb. Very delicious and easy, but I think it takes closer to 40 min to prep and you may not have all the ingredients on hand. If I find lamb on special prep a double batch of the meat (a wok works great for this) and freeze half for a later meal.
