Chef's Tips

Chicken could be used in place of lamb



Very nice, the meat was so tender! Interesting there is Vegemite in this recipe!


The lamb shanks turned out great - great flavour, although I did use other ingredients, meat fell off the bone, the dog got those. So everyone enjoyed it!


Really easy to put together & wait for it all to happen. Smells delicious & tastes awesome. I exchanged the onions & garlic for fennel & ginger & the thyme for rosemary & other random spices. The family loved it!


So easy and so delicious. My first pressure cooker dish. My boys loved it



Yum yum meat just melted off the bone 😜
