Lamb Shanks

Has anyone got a delicious 'tried and true' recipe for lamb shanks cooked in a crockpot and without wine! We're not really drinkers so don't ever have any 'spare' red wine on hand!

Flour, salt & pepper the shanks.
Chop a carrot, onion and stick celery in bottom of SC.
Put lamp chops in, 1/2cup stock (i use chicken or vege), drizzle of maple syrup and a splash of soy sauce.
Cook on high for 4-6 hours
I always remove mine, then grill for a few mins to crisp them up at the end in the oven - they are SO nice.
We just got given a whole sheep, so we have lamb for days! YUM!

LOL, yes.It's a sheepy/lamby type thing and I can tell you we have had 1 roast, 1 set of shanks and 1 set of chops so far and it is YUM!Can't wait to get on the land and get a sheep myself!

feed them to the dogs thats what we do , I cant understand the hype over shanks when theres much nicer meat on a sheep than that

I like my shank meat to fall off the bone and I like it simple.
Pour enough water to come 3/4's of the way up the shanks. Salt, pepper. Add 1 cup soya sauce. Quarter 2 onions(not peeled) and drop them in anywhere. Smash about 4 garlic gloves, again unpeeled, throw them in. Sprinkle a good load of basil and a couple of tablespoons of chives. You could also throw some chopped carrot or celery in, whatever. I put a layer of tinfoil over the meat, raised a bit, then put the lid on.
Set it to whatever time you want on the crockpot, but if I'm doing them in the oven I do one hour at 180, 3 hours at 150 or slightly below. Cover well.

Wow! I think they're one of the tastiest cuts when cooked long and slow.

I just Bake them in the oven for about an hour or so on 150.Spinkle Pepper & Salt lightly over them.

Woof woof! Depends how far you can throw but chuck them my way, I'll even eat them in the kennel if you like.if you scratch me behind the ears and tell me I'm a good boy.

You live on a farm with home kill when you feed them to the dogs!. What a waste. Buying meat these days out of a supermarket for a lot of people is quite expensive and almost out of reach for some, nothing wrong withlamb shanks slow cooked they are lovely. Go to a restrauant and see what you pay for them.

rainrain1, Aug 11, 6:11am
then what would you feed to the dogs!
