Was looking for a new one myself until I heard that the Asda ones are free.

Might be worth thinking about.

The one I used to make for myself was Minted Lamb Henry.

Make up 1 pint of stock add a generous helping of mint sauce (sugar free) Add whichever root vegetables you like and season well.

Brown off 2 shanks and add to the slow cooker with everything else and cook on low for 8hrs.

Remove the shanks and keep warm then blitz the cooking liquid into a sauce. If you would like it thicker add some cornflour and continue cooking for another 30mins on high.

I serve it with mash and carrots :D

I think you'll find Morrisons lamb shanks in minted gravy (chilled) are free too!
And only 9 mins to cook in the micro!

I believe Asda has two. One is minted and I think the other is in a tomato/red wine sauce.
Like rosinakathleen said they only take a few minutes in the microwave too which is great for mid week dinners.

There are quite a few recipes on here too, you will need to adapt them for SW though, fry light etc

Oh I love Lamb shanks. Like them slow braised with Moroccan spices, onions, apricots and prunes in stock and served with cous cous, yum. Will have to adapt to SW. They are so expensive now that they have become a 'trendy' dish.:cry: I haven't got a recipe thought I just make it up as I go. The Indian style ones on the website listed before sound really nice.

Yummy Mummy, they are expensive, i paid £11.70 for 4 of them. Moroccon spices sounds yummy too. Emmalou, that would be yummy with curry sauce on, mmmm. Thanks for those.

Ok, Gonna do mine now with Red Wine, Beef Stock, Passatta, Onions, and mint sauce. Gonna roll them in flour, then fry (fry light) in pan,then take out, and cook onions to get all the juices from the lamb before adding all other ingredients and cook for 3 hours. Saw this on come dine with me, lol.. Decided I'm not going to have any, as Im not out for lunch with my friend tomorrow, so OH and kids will be getting a top nosh :). But still sw style, so will try this again if they like it for me too.

xx

I cooked these on Sunday for the family, and did it as follows:

1 glass of red wine
1 medium onion
4 lamb shanks
Passatta
2 oxo's in 1.5pints of water
2 tsp mint sauce (unsweetened)

I browned the lamb shanks on frying pan, no oil, put those into casserole pot, then fried onions in fry light and in lamb juices, then added these to lamb, then added red wine to pan to burn off alcohol and also to get all of the juices from lamb into stock. Added to lamb and onions, put 2 oxo's into 1.5pints of water and add passatta, added mint sauce and mixed before adding to lamb and onions. Baked on gas 6 for 30 mins, turned down to gas 2 for 3 hours.

Family loved this dish, the lamb fell off the bone, the stock turned into a sort of gravy too and they all ate the lot :).

That sounds very yummy :) EternalFlame.

I tried the lamb shanks in gravy from Asda and wasn't very impressed, they were quite bland. :( And they cost £6 for 2.

Think I will stick to making my own unless anyone can recommend some good ones.

The only pre done ones I really like are from Costco but they cost a lot.

Mrs Hoggie, I would just count that as 8 syns, not sure how much more really. Just deduct that from your weekly allowance and you'll still have syns left for the week hun. Its over and done now and you'll know next time. x
