      Delicious! The shanks were wonderfully tender and the beans, sun-dried tomatoes and other seasonings worked really well together.

      Wish I could give this 10 stars! I did not use your posting. I have the Cuisinart 6.5 qt slow cooker and the cookbook. I was going to post the recipe, searched, and low and behold, you beat me to it! So glad you did. Hublet and I thought we were eating at a 5 star eatery in New York, thinking along the lines of "The Gramercy Tavern". We raise our own lamb and sadly we only had left was the shanks, neck meat bones, soup bones and some ground lamb. Can't wait to raise more sheep so I can make this dish again. I might with the neck anyway. I did use Great Northern beans, 'cause that's what I had. Added 2 more cloves of garlic and a little more rosemary, that I minced (recipe did not say) and used a Pinot Grigio, 'cause that's what I had. Wonderful recipe, and thanks for posting. Did you try it, you did not say?
