I just picked up a crock pot at a garage sale. I have no experience with this kind of cooking.

I remember my late aunt made slow cooked lamb shanks that were fall off the bone tender :dribble: , and all I remember was the recipe had Burgundy wine and a dash of sherry.

Anyone have a good recipe for slow cooked lamb shanks, particularly involving a red wine and a splash of absinthe? Or any other crock pot, slow cook ideas, tips?

Thanks in advance, Louchey :cheers:

^ They both said with a sheepish grin. :cheers:

Slow cookers are great. They don't use much electricity. You get the benefit of retaining more vitamins in the food as a result of low temp cooking and they are convenient because you can safely prepare meals while being away from the kitchen without slaving over a hot stove all day.

Burgundy Lamb Shanks
4 Servings
Prep: 10 min. Cook: 8-1/4 hours

4 lamb shanks (about 20 ounces each)
Salt and pepper to taste
2 tablespoons dried parsley flakes
2 teaspoons minced garlic
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon grated lemon peel
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 medium carrot, chopped
1 teaspoon olive oil
1 cup Burgundy wine or beef broth
1 teaspoon beef bouillon granules

Directions

* Sprinkle lamb with salt and pepper. Place in a 5-qt. slow cooker. Sprinkle with the parsley, garlic, oregano and lemon peel.
* In a small saucepan, saute onion and carrot in oil for 3-4 minutes or until tender. Stir in wine or broth and bouillon. Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally. Pour over lamb. Cover and cook on low for 8 hours or until meat is tender.
* Remove lamb and keep warm. Strain cooking juices and skim fat. In a small saucepan, bring juices to a boil; cook until liquid is reduced by half. Serve with lamb. Yield: 4 servings.
