    Please note that the TM5 mixing bowl has a larger capacity than the TM31 (capacity of 2.2 liters instead of 2.0 liters for TM 31). Recipes for the Thermomix TM5 may not be cooked with a Thermomix TM31 for safety reasons without adjusting the quantities. Risk of scalding by spraying of hot liquids: Do not exceed the maximum filling quantity and observe the filling level markings of the mixing bowl!

Recipe's preparation

    Shanks
  1. Arrange shanks into Varoma dish, you will not need the tray.

     

  2. Place Rosemary over the top of shanks, season with salt and pepper and put Varoma lid on and set aside.

  3. Stock/Sauce
  4. Place celery, carrot, onion and garlic into bowl and chop 5 sec/speed 7.

  5. Scrape sides down, add oil and saute 5 minutes/Varoma/speed 2

  6. Add stock paste, water, tomatoes, red wine, sugar and pepper to bowl. Place lid on, then Varoma into position. Cook 90 minutes/Varoma/speed 2

  7. Turn lamb shanks over to ensure even cooking. For 6 small shanks, cook for 30 mins/Varoma/Speed 2 OR for 4 larger shanks 60 minutes/Varoma/speed 2

  8. Once desired cooking time is up, remove Varoma and place over a Thermoserver to keep warm or place onto plates to begin cooling down a little. Place cornflour in bowl and cook a further 5 minutes/90 degrees/speed 4.

  9. Serve shanks with mashed potatoes (you can do this prior to shanks then keep hot in a Thermoserver whilst cooking shanks), steamed veges (you may be able to fit these in whilst cooking shanks) and drizzle with sauce.

    Enjoy!

Tip

You can drizzle some sauce over the shanks throughout the cooking process if you like.

The left over sauce could easily be eaten as a soup, either as is or with some left over meat shredded into it. To shread ANY steamed meat, chop into chunks and shred 3-5 seconds/Counter-clockwise operation/speed 4

    This was so delicious! I didn't realise I could use the thermomix as a slow cooker. I am hooked and so is hubby! The left over sauce is going to be used as a relish on our sandwiches and wraps.

    Submitted by Mcfadgenclan on 10. December 2016 - 03:53.

    I made this tonight and it is yummy. I used four largeish shanks and the cooking time was good. I have a tm5 and the level was pushed to the max with only 6 tomatoes and they weren't overally large ones. Placed 7 tomatoes in but had to pull 4 quarters out to take the level of max and I had only placed three carrots in also. Perhaps approx weights for the carrots and tomatoes could assist others. I was left with a very thick sauce and certainly didn't need cornflour as I spooned it on and it stayed piled up. I usually make lamb shanks in my slow cooker or the pressure cooker but would happily make it in the thermie with less tomaotes and one less carrot.

    Submitted by hayley.insch on 7. December 2016 - 21:48.

    Made this tonight. It was delicous. I have a TM31 so i only used 6 tomatoes and 800gram water. I left a little liquid out and added after the hour of cooking. I didnt end up needing the cornflour as my sauce was perfect consitancy.

    Thanls for a yummy recipe.

    I found shanks really expensive. Do you know what other cut of lamb may work?

    Thank you

  • Lovely lamb shanks! The meat

    Submitted by Cherryn on 12. October 2016 - 22:31.

    Lovely lamb shanks! The meat falls off the bone, very moist. By the time I got all the ingrediants in for the sauce, I could only fit 7 tomatoes and 300g water. The sauce was very thick. Like a puree. But very tasty! Next time I'll try adding the rest of the water during the last 30 mins of cooking, when the shanks are turned. I didn't need the cornflour!

  • I used to hate cooking shanks

    Submitted by Bec_j_b on 21. September 2016 - 00:07.

    I used to hate cooking shanks but after finding this recipe I'm digging through the freezer to find more!!!  These were amazing!!  I had two large shanks with ribs so I put the ribs on the varoma top tray and shanks in the varoma dish.  My sauce was pretty thick but I liked it like that.  I didn't add sugar as I don't cook with sugar and it tasted great.

    It made ALOT, so we got two meals each, then I cooked plain chicken and used this sauce again and still had heaps left over!  

    I watered down the rest of the sauce and had for soup.  I love that I got so much out of so little effort!!

    Also another bonus was cooking in the varoma it didn't seem to be as fatty.  And that's one thing I hate about cooking lamb.  

    Thank you for posting this recipe  tmrc_emoticons.)

  • Loved this meal whole family

    Submitted by kyliefitness on 17. September 2016 - 14:55.

    Loved this meal whole family enjoyed it, I had my 15 year old daughter make it as I was out so shows how simple it was. The only comment I would have was there was a large amount of sauce left which would have been great to use for something else but my daughter threw it out.

    Was soooo yum!!! Will definitely be making this again! My partner who isn't a huge fan of lamb shanks or the thermi polished off his plate... Winning!!! My sauce was quite thick, i think because i used big carrots & celery (i had to add more water to it during the final cooking time). Made soup with the leftover sauce. Nom nom nom

    Submitted by KellieD on 15. May 2016 - 19:18.

    Yum! This was my very first go at lamb shanks in the Varoma and it was sooooo good! The lamb was tender and fell off the bone. The sauce was really flavoursome too.  I added about 300g of cubed potato and sweet potato to thicken in the last 15 mins (instead of cornflour) then for the very last 10 mins steamed some greens in the Varoma while the lamb was resting in the thermoserver. Will definately make again tmrc_emoticons.)

  • Absolutely brilliant meal!

    Submitted by KristelB on 15. April 2016 - 14:02.

    Absolutely brilliant meal! Hubby was dubious but loved it! We cooked the lamb shanks a little more than recommended to ensure their tenderness. Also we found that the sauce ingredients went above the max. indicator in the bowl so reduced the water and number of tomatoes to accommodate. Sauce tasted amazing, had an abundance leftover and used as soup. The lamb juices dripping into the sauce mix also adds to the flavour.

    Definitely one of my new 'Faves'!

    Submitted by mizzjd13 on 17. February 2016 - 18:20.

    Question ~ do you cook the lamb for 90 minutes then a further 30/60 minutes after that? Thanks in advance tmrc_emoticons.) so can't wait to eat this awesome meal!! 

    PS also how are you able to spread some sauce over the shanks while they're cooking if you can't take the lid off to get into the bowl? Or do you pause cooking, take lid off and then spread over shanks? Apologies for million questions tmrc_emoticons.p

  • I must admit, I was doubtful

    Submitted by Helza on 1. February 2016 - 12:53.

    I must admit, I was doubtful about doing shanks in the Thermomix and didn't think they'd be as tender and delicious as doing them slow in the oven.  But I decided to give this recipe a go and OMG, it is absolutely devine and so so easy.  The sauce is just beautiful and the meat was falling off the bone.  My other half gave this a huge thumbs up and we both were amazed at how the meat wasn't at all oily and neither was the sauce.  This recipe is a keeper!

    Ok, so hubby hated watching me make this!Refused the 'sauce' of this.Ok, I know he's not a fan of Tomatoes, but honestly, you couldn't see them tmrc_emoticons.D

    Anyway, I made a slight change as I didn't have as many tomatoes as stated, so I added in approx 3 zuuchinnis into it.

    I didn't tell the kids what I put in it, they just gushed how awesome everything tasted tmrc_emoticons.;)

    We've got enough 'soup' left over for lunch today.  Think there is going to be a fight on me hands on how much we all get lol

    We served up with Broccoli and corn on the cob and mashed potato tmrc_emoticons.)Thanks for an awesome reciepe tmrc_emoticons.;)
