      Yum!! Sue, I had to tweak the recipe a little. I did not change a thing about your gorgeous mix of spices. But I do not have a crock pot, so I did much the same thing -- by slow-roasting in the oven, for hours! The scents during the long baking time, as we came through the front door, were amazing! The only thing I would change -- and lift this to 5 stars -- would be to stir-fry all those gorgeous spices in a little oil, before using. I found that, however great it smelled, the true flavours did not actually feature in the final result only because the spices were not fried beforehand. But this is still a a great recipe! Thanks for a new idea to do shanks. We have this often, and this spicy recipe was really new to me! :-)

      This was a little to tangy (tomato) for us. It wasn't bad, but it wasn't Wow! at least not for us anyway. It made a nice quick meal though.
