cooking Lamb Shanks for supper

I am cooking lamb shanks for supper today in the slow cooker,

Lamb shanks, browned in a frying pan
Onions garlic
an apple
mixture of herbs
bayleaves
peppercorns
passata
and red wine

Its the red wine that has caused me the problem ... I was in the supermarket this morning and I bought a bottle of a decent but reasonable priced red wine to cook the lamb shanks  in , together with the other ingredients.
I was just about to get in the car when I realised that I was going to find opening the bottle difficult , so I asked a lady iwho was passing through the car park if she could loosen the top of my bottle of wine so that I can cook with it as soon as I got home .. oh dear .. it wasnt realy untill afterwards that I realised how terrible that would have looked ,she probably thught ..
"its a few minutes after 10 am and that woman is already on the wine " lol  lol oh dear it must have looked so bad  oops

lol  tongue   A simple, practical solution . . . here you could risk getting into trouble if the police stopped you for any reason . . . we aren't supposed to have open alcohol in the car.

I guess those wine boxes are a practical solution for some folks!

Don't think too much, Mummza, or you'll end up being me hmm.

Who cares? Will probably never meet her again.

Umm, easy to say ...

Re: cooking Lamb Shanks for supper

Just realised, your lamb shanks are quite a bit different to mine.

Diversity is a good thing.

Re: cooking Lamb Shanks for supper

I never follow a recipe Maree and nog being 'a meat eater ' I just put together what I think .
Generally with a good slosh of wine . ( or half a bottle for the lamb shanks ) my nephew kept telling me now delicious they were .

What do you put with  your lamb shanks !
I just browned the meat and onions and bunged it all in the slow cooker for hours.
