before I get to to the weekend food here is a great steak meal I had during the week:$20 lathered in mushroom sauce tasting of charcoal.
right, here’s this weekend’s creation.
I started Saturday afternoon with the lamb shank in the slow cooker. It’s just a small slow cooker makes enough for a meal & one for the freezer. I have a large family size slow cooker also. I browned the lamb then ran into a problem with one lamb shank not fitting into the cooker. Having no hacksaw, I just put it in anyway & left the bone sticking out, covered the lot with foil and then put the lid onto that. I set the slow cooker to low and by Saturday night the meat fell off the bone. I put the bowl of the cooker into the fridge overnight.
I put the slowcooker on a few hours earlier, & then I sauted chopped onion & garlic, added them, as well as a can of diced tomatoes. Then a few dried mixed herbs.
I added some sour cream and butter to the poatoes as I blended them, but not to smoothly. Served up & then added broccoli, because I wanted more fresh greens.
5 ***** yummy.
