Low Carb Lamb Shanks in the Slow Cooker
Serves 4 - 6
- 4 lamb shanks
- 2 onions, sliced
- 4-6 cloves garlic, crushed or sliced
- 3 sticks celery, sliced
- 400g tin chopped tomatoes
- 2 Tbs tomato paste (1 sachet if you buy them in a box)
- 150mls red wine (optional)
- Salt and pepper
Brown the lamb shanks in a large oiled frying pan, then place in the slow cooker. Sauté the onion, then add the garlic and celery and cook a few more minutes. Tip over the shanks, then add the rest of the ingredients.
Cook on high for about 5-6 hours, or until the meat falls off the bones. Shred the meat, give the bones to the dog and then place the casserole contents into a container and chill overnight. Next day skim the fat from the top and reheat as required.
This is lovely served with cauliflower mash and green veggies.
Note: You could add other veggies such as mushrooms, courgettes, etc to the slow cooker if you have them on hand.
