Five years ago I worked near the Centro shopping centre in Lutwyche. There used to be book sales there in the middle of the centre from time to time and I picked up a couple of Slow Cooker Cookbooks there once, along with a bunch of Eckhart Tolle that I frisbeed off to all my friends who I felt needed enlightening. I'm good like that.
I gave one to my Dad (cookbook, not Eckhart) and he turned out the Lamb Shank with Root Veg recipe several times.
LIFE CHANGING STUFF.
Fast-forward five years and lamb shanks are like, $5 each (ridiculous) and it's a delicious recipe but I decided to try it with a leg of lamb this time with DELICIOUS RESULTS.
This is a super rich, comforting dish that could be camping food (as this batch is intended for the boys' upcoming Cape York trip) or it could be served over homemade (or just very good) fettucine for a dinner party. Add lashings of parmesan and gallons of red wine and you are home and hosed. Drooooooollll.....
