Falling off the bone tender! there’s no need to explain the monumental culinary achievement that is lamb shank. This cut of meat is taken from the lower portion of a lamb’s leg, and when cooked right, results in melt in your mouth flavour.
Cooking this flavourful cut requires something special such as braising, a process which characteristically involves searing it at a high heat followed by slow cooking it in liquid; preferably a gorgeous red wine sauce enhanced with an irresistibly fragrant flurry of garlic.
With a slow-cooking technique, this dish is sure to become an unforgettable culinary masterpiece bursting with mouthwatering flavour. Combined with boiled root vegetables, creamy mashed potatoes, polenta, couscous or pureed cauliflower for the perfect texture contrast, it’s a guilt-free indulgence that can’t be beat!
