Easy Recipe: Crockpot braised lamb shanks (Osso Buco) with tomato sauce

I owe the motivation to make this recipe to my good friend Caitlin Weeks of GrassFedGirl.com. She is always telling me how awesome it is to throw frozen meat into the crock pot at night and wake up to amazing food in the morning. She’s right. I’m just the kind of person who gets tired of certain flavors all the time, but I am realizing that I LOVE braised dishes that have a tomato-based sauce. YUM. This is what I made last night before I tucked into sleep.

Note: This dish will make anywhere from 2-4 servings depending on how much meat vs bone is in your lamb, who you are feeding, and how much they eat. I’ll probably enjoy it at 3 meals.
