Slow Cooker Lamb Shanks Recipe
Serve your slow cooked lamb shanks on a bed of mashed potato for a
spectacular looking and tasting meal.
Lamb shanks were relatively cheap ten years ago, often thought of as a
low grade cut of meat. That's no longer the case, our two good-sized lamb
shanks cost us £8.57 in Sainsbury's and that means it is now an expensive
meal, almost a luxury. So follow our recipe carefully and we will ensure
your meal for two costing over £10 in total is a delightful success.

COOK'S NOTES FOR LAMB SHANKS
The slow cooker we used for this recipe was a 3 litre Tesco SCSS12 model,
admittedly not the largest but definitely not the smallest. With two good-sized
lamb shanks in it there was absolutely no room for more! So if you plan to scale
up this recipe to four lamb shanks then be sure that you have a slow cooker
large enough for the job. That's hint number one which is not mentioned in any
other slow cooker lamb shanks recipe we have read!
Recipe by David Marks.
Heat the oil in your frying pan on a medium heat. Fry the lamb shanks for
5 minutes or so until they are browned. Turn them over three or four times.
Remove the lamb shanks onto a plate.
Pour away most of the oil and place the frying pan back on a medium heat.
Add the wine to the pan and sprinkle the cornflour over the top.
Stir well for four minutes to mix the cornflour
into the wine. If using flour, do the same and don't worry about any lumps
left in the sauce, they will dissolve during the slow-cooking. The wine
should be simmering during this time.
Add the stock to the frying pan and simmer for four
more minutes stirring it constantly.
Set your slow cooker to high and pour in the
contents of the frying pan. Add the remaining ingredients to the slow
cooker, mix well and then place the browned lamb shanks on top.
Slow cook on high for one hour then for
six more hours on the low heat setting.
Towards the end of the cooking time boil the potatoes and mash them.
Serve the lamb shanks and vegetables (remove the bay leaves)
on top of a base of mashed potatoes. Spoon some of the gravy from the slow
cooker over the top.
