      Chris, this was a great find. It's so simple to prepare, then watches itself. I don't own a slow cooker, so I cooked this in the oven for 4 hours on 150c (fan forced) We rarely get frenced shanks, so I used normal ones, and I used the chilli paste for a nice bite.

      I did 4 shanks which only just fitted into my crock pot (3 on the bottom and 1 on the top) so I did need to open the lid to move them around a bit for even cooking which I did twice and after 9 hours on low they were falling of the bone so tender and flavoursome. The only thing was I did not have any fresh tomatoes so used a tin of whole peeled tomatoes (would do again but drain them as there was so much liquid in the end so I scooped some out into a pot and thickened with a cornflour slurry to make a lovely sauce to go over the shanks), thank you Chrissyo, made for Name that Ingredient tag game.

      Wow this was wonderfully tender and the sauce had a great flavour over mashed potatoes. Only change I made was to use a tin of roma tomatoes with most of the juice drained rather than fresh. I think the chili paste is worthwhile and it adds a very subtle flavour that wouldn't be too strong for anyone.
