Any fatty meats I cook in the slow cooker on it's own because the fat leeches out over the day. Add the gravy later.

Very basic, but I cook single lamb shanks wrapped in tin foil which come out great. A single lamb shank is too small for the crock pot hence the reason why I do it in tin foil.

Go out and get the Maggie Crockpot recipe packet - yu8mmy and saves time doing lots of the fiddly stuff, but i do that as well sometimes.

Millions of recipes. Hiss, boo to the packet suggestion - no need using expensive stuff like that when it's so easy (and tastier) to use real ingredients.

I would love to know the secretof how to cook lamb shanks. I have had a couple of goes and despite using top qilaity shanks from a butcher they were a disaster. They were tender but oh my, the gravy was swimming in fat - and the smell fo the fat madae me throw them all out. Have tried oven cooking them and crockpot cooking. Also browned them off in the frypan first too.
