His uncle was in charge of Mahmud II's private treasury, secured him for palace service while he was young, and he then entered the Hassa regiment (1833–1834). He then studied abroad, in France, at the Sultan's expense. He served in a military capacity, as serasker, in Acre (1844–1845), Jerusalem (1845–1847; during which time he suppressed a serious Bedouin revolt), Tirnova (1847), and then Belgrade (1847–1848). During this period, many rumours circulated about his mismanagement practices, but they were dismissed by the Sultan as gossip. He was appointed as a vizier in 1848.

In 1850–51, Mehmed Emin served as governor of the Eyalet of Aleppo, at the end of which he was appointed müşir (field marshal), in the province of Syria.[1]

His periods of administration were for the first term between 29 May and 23 November 1854, the second term between 18 November 1859 and 24 December 1859, and for the last term between 28 May 1860 and 6 August 1861. As such, he was also the last grand vizier under Abdülmecid.

Like many other prominent Ottoman statesmen of the Tanzimat period, Mehmed Emin Pasha rose from the Dragoman's office (Turkish: Tercüme Odası), largely Turkified by the 19th century, and climbing through the foreign office of the Ottoman Empire, held consecutive ambassadorial and governorship posts.

Mehmed Emin Pasha died in his yalı in Kandilli, Istanbul, in 1871.

After his death, his wife, Melek Hanım, wrote her memoirs of the harem, in the 19th century context of that institution, as well as a controversial account of the high spheres of the Ottoman society, published in New York City in 1874, treating much the same period as the memoirs of Leyla Saz, written much later in the 1920s.
