These lamb shanks are slowly cooked in a delicious sauce until they fall apart. Red wine paired with whole grain mustard, fresh mint and honey combine to create a sauce with a wonderful depth of flavour. We also added baby carrots to the slow cooker which caramelised beautifully in the sauce. Serve shanks on a kumara and potato mash and enjoy.
