Slow Cooker Lamb Shanks

Some of you know my aunt and uncle owned a restaurant in Greektown.   When I used to go down to Greektown in Detroit, I would always order a gyro.  Then I discovered a lamb shank.  There is a restaurant in Manassas that makes a great one – Katerina’s .  So I decided to do a lamb shank or better yet, have my daughter Mary and son-in-law Jack do my recipe.  So Mary and Jack  gave me the thumbs up.  Hope you like it too.
