Slow Cooker Lamb Shanks

Yield 4-5 serves

This is my super simple recipe for lamb shanks in the slow cooker, its so easy and they always come out melt in your mouth perfect. 



  1. Cut lamb shanks around the bone end so that the meat bunches up while cooking. 
  2. Add onion, shanks, carrots, canned tomatoes, beef stock, cumin, salt and bay leaves to the slow cooker and mix to combine. 
  3. Make sure bones are sticking up and put on the lid. 
  4. Cook for 4 hours on high or up to 8 hours on low.
  5. Mix cornflour with a little cold water and pour in 20 mins before serving to thicken up liquid. 
  6. Serve on mash or with sides of your choice.
