Mincing shoulder with no mincer

Has anyone ever minced a lamb shoulder...with no mincer? I wonder if it's possible. I don't have a mincer and I like the idea of mincing my own for lamb kebabs.

Kebabs are typically cubes of meat on the skewer. If you want minced lamb to make kofta, it would be difficult to get it fine enough by hand so that it would have structural integrity to stay on a skewer.

Well maybe by hand (unless I have a zirh!) but I do have a food processor. Perhaps a combination of the two? I don't know. I don't want to buy a lamb shoulder and then mess it up.

I did some in the food processer once. BIG MISTAKE! That was the toughest minced/ground lamb kebabs we've ever had. They stayed on the skewers but were just tough. Get your butcher to do it.

Annoyingly, my butcher doesn't really have lamb.
