Until recently I still hadn't made my mind up about slow cookers. It seemed that everything I made in my handsome Crock tasted similar. It wasn't a bad taste - quite deep and meaty and flavoursome, but frankly all a bit samey. I was reading a blog the other day where a poster was moaning about beef being the nemesis of the slow cooker - left for any longer than 4 hours and it turns into a samey tasting stew. Therein lay my problem! I'd been overdoing the beef. So without further ado, I grabbed some lamb shanks out of the freezer and set to work. The results were a hot and wholesome stew fit for a cold, cold day. And we've been getting a lot of those lately.
