Juicy delicious lamb shanks are slow cooked to perfection with vegetables, with red wine, chicken broth, and herbs.
Feel free to substitute about 1 teaspoon each of dried leaf rosemary and dried leaf thyme for the fresh herbs.
- Heat oil in a large skillet or saute pan. Add the lamb shanks, sprinkle with salt and pepper, and brown on all sides, about 6 to 8 minutes total.
- Transfer the lamb to a slow cooker insert. Add onion, carrots, and celery to the skillet and cook, stirring, until onion is just tender.
- Add the vegetable mixture to the slow cooker, along with the garlic, wine, and chicken stock. Add the herb sprigs, cover, and cook on HIGH for 1 hour.
- Turn heat to low and cook for about 7 to 9 hours longer, or until lamb shanks are very tender. Or, cook on high for about 5 to 6 hours.
