Slow Cooked Pulled Lamb with White Wine & Root Vegetables

One of our favourite dishes (from a supermarket) is lamb shanks which I have never made at home but really ought to! With this in mind my husband suggested that rather than roasting the leg of lamb we had, why didn’t I slow cook it to replicate the lamb shanks we both love. As I’m getting to know and feel a lot more comfortable with my slow cooker I had a rummage around and found a little bottle of Prosecco that Sainsbury had kindly sent me and decided that that would give a lovely flavour to the dish. I also had a butternut squash, carrots, parsnips and onion which would add a lovely sweetness and be a good accompaniment to the lamb. If I’d had some fresh rosemary I would have stuck some fronds into the lamb but I just had some dried so sprinkled that on instead! I used to have a lovely big rosemary bush in my old house but since moving to our current one the Wisley Beetle just decimates any rosemary I try to grow so I’ve had to give up!

Anyway, I can’t tell you how delicious and succulent the lamb was. Even my daughter who is quite finicky about eating meat had seconds! With the cooking liquor I made gravy and for extra lushness you could melt in some redcurrant jelly which I will definitely do next time. I added some extra roasted parsnips, peas and crispy coated roast potatoes to go alongside the vegetables that had been cooked with the lamb. I think it’s fair to say we were all in culinary heaven eating this dish. I can’t drink wine due to allergies but I shan’t complain if anyone wants to give us a bottle as this slow cooked lamb is divine!
