Didn’t realise I needed to prepare things on a fry pan prior to slow cooking, but that’s ok!
I was a bit worried it was going to be over powered by the tomato, but it was a nice balance and suited hubby and I and our preferences 🙂 will make it again!

Really lovely. Changed some of the measurements as I had 4 lamb shanks and needed less liquid so I didn’t overflow my cooker. We also used a redwine sauce mix (masterfoods).
The meat fell right off the bone and it was delightful to eat. Served with mash potato aswell.

Cooked this with 5 lamb shanks and there was more than enough gravy for them. Nice flavour. But took quite a bit to thicken. Could have been due to having cooking more shanks. Elderly neighbour loved it. Would make this again for sure.
