Well, we had one each, as recommended by the butcher, but it was far too much, so we have lots left over. One between the two of us would have been plenty!

My mother would love a "secret mint marinade," sounds yummy!

How many shanks did you need for how many servings?

Thanks for sharing!

I made lamb shanks today. The butcher had already marinaded them in his secret mint marinade for 48 hours. I then slow roasted at about 130 C / Gas Mark 3 for 3 hours in a caserole dish, bone and all. I then tipped the juices off and skimmed the fat off to make some gravy.

The butcher suggested slow roasting as above in red wine and some chopped shallots, then using the juices for a gravy.

I shall use the bones to make stock - and we have some left over, tender lamb too.

My grandmother braised the best lamb shanks. No one has her recipe and everytime I have tried to duplicate it I miss something. Mine is never as tender and rich tasting

Keep on track

I've roasted numerous legs and racks of lamb, seared many a lamb chop, and even made a fair share of ground lamb dishes (kefta). But, I wasn't quite sure what to do with a lamb shank, once I got it home, LOL!

I ended up slicing and dicing the meat (very sinewy, I found), braising it in a bit of olive oil with onion and garlic, then adding it to stewed veggies in a sauce made with pan drippings, vegetable stock and sherry. It made a nice dish over orzo, and my DH and mom liked it.

Any other ideas are welcome. I love lamb, and it's one of the few animal proteins I can eat.
