  • Trim any excess fat from the shanks. Mix flour, paprika, salt and pepper and roll shanks in this mixture.
  • Over medium heat, melt butter in large skillet. When hot, brown shanks. Don't rush this step; it's important to producing a rich flavor.
  • Put browned meat in slow cooker. Add wine to browning pan and scrape up any browned bits in the pan. Pour over meat.
  • Remove loose papery covering from the garlic heads, taking care to keep heads intact. Trim off any roots and cut about 1/3 inch from the top of each head to expose individual cloves. Tuck garlic in among meat chunks.
  • Remove zest and squeeze juice from lemon. Spread over meat. Cover and cook on low 7 - 8 hours.
  • To serve, put meat and garlic on serving plate. Pour off juice into a narrow jar or glass and skim off the fat that rises to the surface. Pass sauce with meat and garlic.
Note: Have the butcher cut shanks cross-wise into 2 inch pieces so they will fit easily into the cooker. Whole, uncut shanks will fit a large oval cooker.
