Get the slow cooker out.
- 3 lamb shanks

- Lamb bones
- 1 x brown onion, diced
- 2 x carrots, sliced
- ¼ Cauliflower, cut into chunks
- 2 sticks celery, finely diced
- 1 x zucchini, diced
- 2 cloves garlic, finely diced
- 2 Cups Lamb or chicken bone broth/stock (I use home made. See recipe under bone broth)

- ¼ tsp. black pepper

- Turn the slow cooker on to high heat to warm up.
- Heat a large frying pan on medium-high heat and add oil.
- Add onion and cook stirring for 2 minutes until it goes soft.
- Put the celery and carrot into the pan. Cook stirring for 1 minute.
- Add the garlic, cumin, paprika and cinnamon. Cook stirring for 2 minutes to allow the flavours to develop.
- Sprinkle a little salt on the lamb shanks, turn the heat up to high and put the lamb shanks in the pan. Cook the shanks on all sides to brown slightly and to get coated in the spices.
