This one takes a bit of prep but the Lamb comes out of the slow cooker extremely tender and proper lush.
2 x Good quality Lamb Shanks (around 350 - 400 g each).
1 Garlic ( 1/2 cloves crushed, Half left whole)
4 x Sprigs of Fresh Rosemary
2 x Finely Chopped Red Onions
1 400g tin of chopped tomatoes
150 Ml or Lamb Stock
20 Ml of Balsamic Vinegar
The night before, make some cut's in the Lamb shanks, drizzle the Lamb shanks with olive oil and coat with the crushed Garlic and 2 of the rosemary sprigs. Try and get the garlic into the groves. Leave in the Fridge overnight.
The following morning. Place the onion, whole garlic cloves and remaining rosemary in the slow cooker. Add the tomatoes, vinegar, wine and stock. Season well with salt and pepper and stir well to mix together.
Then, In a large frying pan, Brown the lamb shanks all over on a high heat, then add them to the slow cooker. Make sure that they are almost covered by the sauce.
Cook in the slow cooker for around 8 hours. Once cooked, remove the Lamb shanks and reduce the remaining sauce to make a sort of gravy. Serve with mash potato's and green beans - proper lush.
