I usually brown off the shanks in a hot pan with some butter or oil. Also some roughy chopped onion. Put into slow cooker and add a tin or two of chopped tomatoes. And enough red wine to cover the shanks :-) Add fresh twigs of rosemary and some squished garlic cloves as well as a generous sprinkling of salt & pepper and cook on low until the shanks are tender. I then remove the shanks from the slow cooker and set aside in a warmed oven. Strain the sauce into a pot to reduce on the stove. Adjust seasoning and serve liberally poured over the shanks with mashed potato and lots of green veggies :-)
