  1. Place the olive oil in a large frying pan over a medium-high heat. Dust the shanks in flour, add to the frying pan and cook until well browned. Transfer the shanks to the slow cooker.
  2. Wipe out the frying pan, place it back over the heat and add the onion. Saute for 2 minutes until softened. Add the tomato puree and stir well to combine.
  3. Deglaze the pan with the red wine and chicken stock. Bring to a boil and then pour over the shanks in the slow cooker.
  4. Place the carrots, bay and thyme into the slow cooker and stir well to combine.
  5. Put the slow cooker lid into position then turn the appliance on. Press the up arrow to 12.0 (12 hours) then select the Low function. The decimal will flash to show the function has begun.
  6. Once the setting has completed, garnish with chopped parsley and serve with crushed potatoes. Enjoy!
