¼ of a preserved lemon, roughly chopped

400g of chickpeas, drained and rinsed

Salt and pepper, to season

• Heat olive oil in a pan over a medium heat. Add lamb shanks, turning until brown on each side (depending on the size of your pan, you may need to do two at a time). Remove shanks from the pan and set aside, then add onion and cook until golden and slightly softened.

• Place lamb shanks, onion, crushed tomato, dates, preserved lemon, chickpeas and beef stock into a slow cooker, then add the jar of Beerenberg Moroccan Lamb Slow Cook Meal Base.

• Cook on high for 4 hours, or low for 6 hours.
