The preparation for this lamb shanks in red wine dish is incredibly simple and you can sit back, relax and let the slow cooker do all the work! Serve with steamed potatoes, or mashed potatoes, and green vegetables of your choice. Absolutely scrumptious, enjoy.

This is one for the garlic lovers out there. On a personal note, I sometimes use more than suggested here... Please adjust seasonings to your own individual tastes. I sometimes add chilli paste to the marinade. Let me know how it goes. Hope you enjoy it as much as Malzu's family do.

This lamb shank recipe was initially given to me as a family favourite from a mate at work. I've prepared it in a slow cooker and made it as easy as possible to prepare. It has a fantastic flavour and the meat just falls off the bone. I have made this in the oven as well and doubled the quantities for four people and it tasted just as good, only everybody went in for seconds and there were no leftovers.

We love lamb in our family and this is a really super dish for the shanks. Cooking them really slowly like this means that by the time they are done they are incredibly tender and braking apart with a fork. Serve with seasonal vegetables.

For those who love fall-from-the-bone lamb. Burgundy wine adds a special touch to the sauce that's served alongside.

This delightful Greek dish is a favourite in our household. In this dish, lamb shanks are slow cooked in stock and white wine with vegetables and herbs. I absolutely love using my homemade spice mix for this recipe.

A succulent, tender and totally moreish lamb dish. Lamb shanks are rubbed with gyros seasoning, then slowly cooked in a baba ganoush seasoned beef stock. It is then served with a yoghurt-garlic sauce. Enjoy with mashed potatoes, if desired.
