Aussie Lamb Shanks

  , ,

April 25, 2020

  • Cook: 8 hrs
  • Yields: 6


6 lamb shanks

1/3 cup honey

1T vegemite

8-10 hand length stalks of fresh rosemary


1Place raw lamb shanks into slow cooker (be sure to remove the plastic sleeve on the bone knuckle that many have on them)

2In a microwave safe cup combine honey and vegemite and heat for 30secs then stir well to combine

3Brush this all over the shanks until all coated

4Lay rosemary over shanks (keep them on the stalk so you can easily remove them at the end prior to serving)

5Cook on AUTO for 8hrs – which is 2hrs high then 6hrs low … or cook them on just LOW for 8-10hrs.

6I used a 7L searing slow cooker for mine which enabled me to place them in a single layer but if you need to stack them that’s ok too – just rotate position half way through cooking


8This recipe also features in our Family Favourites recipe book, available on the shop page of this website

My SlowCooker doesn’t sear. Should I sear t them first? Thanks

Pretty bloody good! Nice flavour. Only used two shanks but same amount of honey and vegemite as the recipe. (Although I misread it as one teaspoon not tablespoon and read the comments on the recipe afterwards)
Used dried rosemary instead as didn’t have any fresh at home. Would like to use fresh next time to be able to take off prior to serving.

You sure can use dry rosemary Rachel, just sprinkle generously 🙂

No water needed Rachel 🙂

Delicious, I was a bit sceptical….but loved it.

1T is one tablespoon 🙂
(1t is one teaspoon)

Beautiful flavour. I only cooked two, so used 1/2 the sauce recipe. Next time I will use the full amount. Will definitely cook these again….
