Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 8 hours
Total Time 8 hours 15 minutes
Servings 4


  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 4 Lamb shanks
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 2 tablespoons plain flour
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 500 ml red wine
  • 1 cup beef stock


  • Heat oil in fry pan and cook shanks over high heat until browned
  • Place in slow cooker
  • Reduce fry pan heat to medium low.
  • Add garlic and stir, being careful not to allow it to burn.
  • Add flour and tomato paste and stir for 3 minutes.
  • Add red wine and simmer for 5 minutes.
  • Pour sauce on top of shanks and cook on LOW for 8-10 hours.


  • I thicken the sauce at the end by adding a little cornflour in about the last hour.
  • Best serves with potato mash.
  • I use my 3.5l slow cooker for this but it can be a bit small to fit the shanks in comfortably depending on how big they are so i think a 5.5l would be better.
  • Also if you don't want the red wine to be as strong you can swap the beef stock and red wine amounts around for a subtler flavour.
