Back to work and needing to find simple solutions to dinner. So here is a simple delicious meal using Lamb Shanks.
4 lamb Shanks dusted in seasoned flour
3 crushed cloves of garlic
1 large onion roughly chopped
5 large Mushrooms roughly chopped
1 cup of beef stock
1/3 cup of Maple syrup
1/2 cup Red wine (I used Merlot)
Bung it all in the crock pot, switch it on low in the morning and give it a minimum of 8 hours. Stirring once if possible throughout the day.
When you get home all you need to do is cook up some Mash potatoes.
I decided to take the sauce from the meat and put it on the stove with a tablespoon of cornflour (mixed in 2 tablespoons of water to avoid lumps) leave to boil and reduce for an absolutely delicious gravy.
After 8 hours!
My pot of mash potato
The finished product!
Master 6 yummed and groan through his whole dinner and hubby and I were finding it hard not to do the same.
