I used 3 frenched cut lamb shanks and I could not get Ardmona Indian style tomatoes and settled for basil and garlic style which still went really well flavour wise. Though after the 4 hours cooked on high they were well done and parting from the bone they did not have that tenderness that oven cooking gives them and the meat was a little chewy so would definately go with cooking on low in the crock pot or doing in a slow oven.
