    Peter J's Note:

    Modified version of a recipe I found on the 'net that I thought turned out great. Apart from a few small changes to seasoning the original recipe called for a cup of wine rather than beer, sometimes I feel with tomato that makes things a bit rich when slow-cooked and I thought the beer substitution worked well. If you don't want to use beer try a cup of beef stock instead of the stock powder / beer. Also whole garlic cooked this way doesn't taste strong at all, if you want it to have a strong garlic taste you'd need to crush some of it.

      I love to experiment with new dishes and my wife has recently been drawn to lamb. When she brought home some lamb shanks, I was initially very concerned as I know shanks are usually tough and sinewy. I must admit that I was absolutely blown away with how tender and tasty this meal turned out. After 7 hours in the crock pot the bones were popping out and all the flavors had combined to create a delicious main dish. I modified the ingredients to exclude any alcohol (added more broth) and added fresh rosemary which I placed on top of the shanks at the start of cooking as well as substituting baby Portabella mushrooms. I even got compliments from my 18 year old son. He said it was the best lamb he had ever had. We complimented the meal with a Caesar salad, baked garlic, butter and basil potatoes and butter saut?ed zucchini as well as a bit of fresh warm corn bread. My measurement of meal success is based on the amount of leftovers we have. Unfortunately, I won't be enjoying a lamb shank sandwich tomorrow and the family gobbled it all up. You can%u2019t go wrong with this recipe.

      This was a very good recipe for lamb shanks, I like the idea of not using red wine. My lamb shanks were huge, 2kg. I wondered how this would affect the sauce but there was plenty. Loved the whole garlic cloves! The only thing lacking was some seasoning, I added some salt at the end and some more pepper. Thanks!

      Very hearty, but the lamb flavor was overpowered by the many strongly flavored ingredients.
