    • 4 lamb shanks
    • 2 tablespoons plain flour
    • Pinch of salt and a few grinds of pepper
    • 1 tablespoon cooking oil of choice
    • 1 tablespoon fresh grated ginger
    • 3 garlic cloves finely chopped
    • 1 shallot finely sliced
    • 1 tablespoon honey
    • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
    • 1/3 cup red wine
    • 2 cups Veal Stock (or vegetable stock)
    • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar (in addition to the one above)
    • Fresh coriander to serve


    1. Add the salt and pepper to the flour and mix to combine
    2. Use your hands to rub the seasoned flour all over each shank
    3. Remove the bowl from the slow cooker and place it on the stove top
    4. Over medium heat add the cooking oil, ginger, garlic and shallot and stir until the shallot has softened
    5. Remove these ingredients and set aside
    6. Add the shanks, two at time and brown over a medium high heat on each side
    7. With two shanks in the cooking pot add half a tablespoon of honey and half a tablespoon of balsamic and turn each shank to coat well.  Remove and repeat with the other two shanks using the other half tablespoons of the honey and balsamic. (Eg: in total the four shanks are coated in 1 tablespoon of honey and 1 tablespoon of balsamic. This is done two at a time, using half of the ingredients for each set)
    8. With all four shanks in the cooking pot add the red wine and allow to reduce by half
    9. Remove the cooking pot from the stove top and return it to the unit
    10. Add the ginger, garlic and shallots
    11. Add the remaining ingredients, including the additional tablespoon of balsamic vinegar.
