  • Slow Cooker


  • 2 Lamb Shanks
  • 1/2 Fresh Lemon
  • 1 Tablespoon Thyme
  • 1 Tablespoon Oregano
  • 1 Tablespoon Ground Black Pepper
  • 1 Tablespoon Ground Paprika
  • 1 Tablespoon Season All
  • Thumb of Ground Ginger
  • 8 Chunks of pineapple
  • 1/2 Red Pepper, cut into small chunks
  • 2 Tablespoon Soy Sauce


  • Rinse lamb in cold water and place inside slow cooker pot. Squeeze half of the fresh lemon over the meat.
  • Add the thyme, oregano, ground black pepper, paprika, season all and ginger.
  • Add half a cup of water to the pot.
  • Place the lid of the slow cooker and if safe to do so, take a hold of it and shake it so that the lamb and the seasoning mix in together. Note if the slow cooker pot is too heavy then you can do the mixing in a separate plastic bowl or something similar and then transfer it to the clow cooker.
  • Place in the slow cooker on high heat for 4 hours.
  • Preheat your oven to 160°C (320 °F). Once the slow cooker cycle is done, move the lamb to a suitable oven dish. Do not discard the excess juices from the slow cooker.
  • Add the red peppers, pineapple and soy sauce.
  • Spread the juices from the slow cooker over the lamb and vegetables.
  • Place in the oven for around 20 - 30 minutes (or until it becomes slightly brown and crispy) before turning it over. After turning it over, spoon some of the juices over the meat and vegetables again to keep them moist.
  • Remove from the oven after another 20 - 30 minutes (or until it becomes slightly brown and crispy). Enjoy!
