Crock Pot Lamb Shank Recipe

This Crock Pot Lamb Shank Recipe will become a favorite in your household just as it has in ours. Spicy, fruity and finger-licking good.

Just put all the ingredients in the crock pot and go enjoy your day. This recipe definitely benefits from a long cooking time.

This crock pot recipe is extra easy ... and extra tasty.

I will admit to not being a big fan of prunes. And was tempted to leave them out. But Neil talked me into leaving them in. And I am so glad I did.

The prunes and apricots go all soft and mushy and turn into a delicious sauce. So if you are like me and don't like prunes, give it a go - it truly is delicious.

We found this recipe in an old recipe book from the 1970's - “Crockery Cookery by Mable Hoffman”. A lot of the recipes are dated and not very appealing however we have found a few gems like this one and have earmarked a few more to try.

"Really just wanted to tell you both how much I like your blog.

We tried the lamb shanks last night with prunes and apricots, was a big hit with the entire family, including the two seniors (over 80). Am a working mother (like most people) and just love coming home to a cooked meal. Will now try all of your recipes.

Thank you for sharing them."
