Lamb Shanks – Slow Cooker
Amount Ingredient Carbs
2 lamb shanks 0g
2 sticks celery 3g
1 large carrot 10g
1 medium onion 5g
⅓ cup tomato paste 9g
¼ cup white vinegar 0g
¼ cup Worcestershire sauce 11g

½ tspn glucomannen powder (konjac flour) 2g
Total Carbs 42g

Cauliflower rice (160g of cauli florets per person) or zucchini noodles (1 med per person) to serve.

Trim any excess fat off shanks

Chop celery into 5mm slices & dice carrot. Place in bottom of slow cooker bowl & mix together. Place shanks on top.

Slice onion & add to remaining ingredients EXCEPT Glucomannen/konjac powder together in a medium size jug & mix well. It will look like way too little liquid but don’t panic 😉

lambshanks in the slow cooker

Pour this mixture over shanks & vegetables, lifting shanks slightly to get sauce around them as best you can.

Put lid on slow cooker bowl & cook on low for 8 -10 hours or high for 4-5 hours until meat is nearly falling off bones.

While cooker is still on, remove shanks from dish & wrap in foil to keep warm.

Skim any fat off top of sauce & then evenly sprinkle glucomannen/konjac powder over sauce while stirring. Stir for about 2 minutes until thickened.

Put cauliflower rice or zuccini noodles on plates, place a shank on each plate & pour sauce over.

** can be cooked in a medium baking dish in a moderate oven for 2-3 hours, turning shanks over halfway through. Would need to add about ½ water to sauce mixture.
