Slow cooked Goat shanks

I have used Leap farm goat available from the Bream Creek Farmers Market but this would work well with lamb shanks or osso bucco (sliced up beef shanks). And there are big variations in cooking times amongst different slow cookers so allow time for extra cooking if you don’t know yours very well.

2 shanks
2 onions
2 cloves garlic
4 sprigs thyme
200 ml beef stock
400 gram tomatoes
2 bay leaves
½ teaspoon pepper berries
200 ml red wine

Seal the shanks in a hot pan on all sides and put in the slow cooker. Add the peeled and roughly chopped onion, peeled and crushed garlic, and thyme, stock, crushed tomatoes, bay leaves, cracked pepper berries a pinch of salt and the wine and cook for 4 hours on high. Serve with mashed potatoes, sweet potato and pumpkin or polenta and vegetables.
