Cook the bacon in a large frying pan until crispy. Remove from the pan. Add some oil, and cook the onion until they're golden brown, add the broccoli and cook with a lid so it steams. Once the broccoli is nearly cooked, add the cauliflower, zucchini, garlic and cabbage and stir to combine. Continue to cook until the veggies are soft and then add the coriander and chilli.

Slow-cooked lamb shanks from the Gutalicious cookbook - GF, DF

2 lamb shanks

1 tablespoon tomato paste

2 teaspoons turmeric powder

1/2 teaspoon paprika and coriander

1 onion, sliced

2 garlic cloves, crushed

1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar

1 cup of chicken stock or bone broth

2 tablespoons butter

Broccoli and/or kale (steamed)

 

Add the lamb shanks to a frying pan to brown/seal the meat, this should take about 5-10 minutes. Add all the ingredients (except the butter) to a slow cooker and cook on the lowest heat for 8 hours. When you are ready to serve, take the lamb shanks out and pull the meat off (I like to shred it) then pour the remaining liquid and onions from the slow cooker into a beaker and add the butter, blitz until smooth and creamy. Serve by drizzling over the meat. I like to steam some broccoli and kale to go with the meat. Enjoy!
