Lemon Persian Lamb- Slow Cooked

There is nothing like coming home to lamb shanks in the slow cooker. This dish only took 10minutes to prep in the morning ( or the night before 👌) and switch on low👍👍

It is also loaded with Vegetables, herbs and spices!

Slow cookers are the best kitchen appliance to have when life gets a little busy!

Here is what I do, to be more time effective with eating well in a busy life;

  1. I meal plan
  2. I choose meals that are time appropriate each day, according to what time we walk in the door of an evening.
  3. I prep as much as I can- this often means either prepping on a weekend, or the night before.
  4. I don’t let the prep and planning become time consuming- 10-30 minutes max.
  5. I keep it simple during the week and especially in really busy times.
  6. I use my slow cooker a lot!!                                                                                    You can prep your slow cooker the night before, with all your ingredients,     ( minus the liquid), store in the fridge, so all you have to do is place in the morning is put it the base,  add your liquid and switch on…happy days!

Here is a wonderful Lemon Persian Lamb Shank Stew I have adapted and tweaked from Sarah Wilson’s new cookbook, ‘Simplicious Flow’. This cookbook is filled with so many time effective  tips, recipes, economical and environmental pointers that can really help you in your busy life to eat well.

Enjoy!
