  • Place your lamb shanks in the slow cooker and put diced onion, mushroom, garlic, rosemary and tin tomatoes on top.

  1. Thank you for a great recipe, it was delicious. Followed your recipe exactly and it was so good. Added some mint jelly for extra taste just before serving – so good.

  2. This is to die for!!! I did 6 lamb shanks and doubled the tin tomatoes and instead of using rosemary I used the master foods packet called perfect for lamb which has rosemary,garlic,thyme. I also cut up 2 chorizos and added them at the start this meal is an absolute favourite!! Highly recommend xx
