They are really good!
I have also used a small lambroast with this.
I tend to add cellary and mushroom and garlic. I only use one onion
And it goes amazing with rice
(I added cherry tomatoes once also nice)
(I dont reduce liquid i find once adding gravy i do it about 10-30mins after serving it is fine)
^_^ im glad i came cross this recipe. Thanks!

I’m sorry I found this too late!
But generally speaking no that’s fine
I just flip them half way if I’m around to do so 🙂

Hi, I’m making this dish today and needing some advice please. My shanks are in the slow cooker at the moment but are not fully covered with the liquid. Should they be?
