Easiest Slow Cooker Chilli Lamb Shanks

This is one of my two favourite winter lamb recipes and it's super easy to make.

The lamb literally falls off the bone.


2 onions cut into wedges

6-8 lamb shanks

1 large tin Ardmona crushed tomatoes

1 heaped teaspoon minced garlic

1 heaped teaspoon minced chilli

  1. Cut onion into wedges and add to the slow cooker

  2. Add lamb shanks

  3. Sprinkle minced garlic and chilli over the top of lamb shanks

  4. Pour tin crushed tomatoes over the top

  5. Cook in slow cooker on high for four hours

  6. Stir through by rotating the shanks within the slow cooker and their position within the cooker

  7. Repeat the same process every two hours

  8. Remove from slow cooker when the lamb shanks begin to come off the bone


Serve on top of mashed potato and pour tomato mixture from the pan over the top and fresh green beans, yellow squash and carrots


HINT: You need to stir it through every few hours otherwise the shanks on the top tend to dry out a little and are not as nice
