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.
