    Slow Cooked Lamb Shanks

    Using the slow cooker is one of my favourite methods for cooking in winter. Simply prepare, set and leave. Lamb shanks are no exception. These lamb shanks are so tender when slow cooked the meat literally falls off the bone.

    Prep time: 10 minutes
    Cooking time: 8 hours

    Ingredients:
    2 lamb shanks
    2 carrots
    1 sweet potato
    2 celery sticks
    1 brown onion
    2 cloves of garlic
    2 tbs of seeded mustard
    2 tbs of tomato paste
    Salt and pepper
    Olive oil

    Method:
    Brown onion and garlic on low heat in a saucepan or cooking pot with olive oil, salt and pepper
