Balsamic & Tomato Slow Cooker Lamb Shanks
Impressive Lamb Shanks Recipe
Although the shank is one of the least tender parts of the lamb (meaning it has excellent flavour), when it’s slow cooked, it falls off the bone. That’s why these balsamic & tomato slow cooker lamb shanks are a firm favourite. Make this beautiful dish to impress for a date night, or dinner party. The simple flavours marry together to give a rich and flavoursome sauce that will leave everyone wanting more.

To Prepare Lamb
To Prepare Sauce
To Slow Cook
Turn your slow cooker to low.
In a small bowl, mix the flour with a pinch of salt and pepper.
Next you need to coat the lamb shanks in flour, shaking off any excess.
Heat a frying pan to moderate-high heat on the stove-top and add half the olive oil.
Brown the lamb shanks, turning often to brown all over. Browning creates the great depth of flavour you get once lamb shanks are cooked.
Set lamb aside.
