Shank You Very Much

Ooooh this is exciting! My first time cooking shanks. 2nd time cooking lamb. Had no idea what I was doing but I have watched enough cooking shows in my time to give it a crack and “Ready Steady Cook” assures me that lamb, red wine & rosemary work. On a side note, I’m pretty sure it’s near impossible to stuff up anything in the slow cooker. My long-time carnivore sister Christie was suitably impressed, she can be a pretty hard marker so I am air-punching right now. Go me.

1 cup red wine
2 tins chopped tomatoes
1 L stock of your choice (I use my homemade beef bone broth)
1 tbs apple cider vinegar
Big pinch salt & pepper
1 onion, finely diced
3 cloves garlic, crushed
Few sprigs rosemary
2-3 tbs turmeric
4 lamb shanks
1 tbs coconut oil for cooking

Pop the turmeric in a bowl. Coat the shanks in the turmeric- you can roll them in it, I just pretty much rubbed it all over the outside. Heat the oil in a frypan, add garlic, onion and any turmeric left from coating the shanks & cook until the onion is translucent. Transfer this from pan into your slow cooker. Pop the same pan back on the heat and seal the shanks on all sides then pop them in the slow cooker too. Add all remaining ingredients to the slow cooker. Turn it on. Go do your thing for about 5 hrs. You can leave it longer. I left mine for about 7hrs. Serve with a cauliflower mash or cauliflower rice. We had ours with a cauliflower & zucchini purée.

    I’m thinking of going gluten free for a little while, think I might be sensitive to it, not allergic like celiac. how did you come about your beef bone for your broth?

  2. I just asked for some beef soup bones at the organic butcher & voila 😉
