My local grocery store has lamb shanks on sale this week. I love lamb, but I don't regularly cook it, and I've never made or eaten lamb shanks before. I also have a big jar of preserved lemons that I'd like to make a dent in, and some olives hanging out in the fridge. I was thinking some kind of Moroccan preparation. Ideally, I could pop these in my slow cooker before heading to work in the morning and come home to an amazing meal that I could serve over couscous or something.
Do you have any better suggestions? Do you have a tried and true method of cooking these that I should know about?
