Cook's Notes

Asking your butcher to slice your shanks ensures an easy fit in a slow cooker. Or, look for smaller foreshanks, which come from the front of the lamb.

    This is delicious! Many crockpot recipes are tasteless but not this one! I followed the directions to the "T" , used fresh olives - not jarred or canned and this was wonderful. Paired it with a Rioja, served with a salad and my guests loved it, asked for the recipe.
