Share it:

Slow-roasted lamb shanks are such a great cold weather meal. They are full of flavor, and extremely easy to make. This recipe has only a few ingredients, but thanks to the long, slow cooking, it results in succulent, fork-tender lamb.

"One of the best things I've ever made. Used all local ingredients from the farmers market, 2 fresh lamb shanks, fresh rosemary, thyme and garlic to make this for dinner for my boyfriend and I and we were both blown away. The neat just fell off the bone! Simple, easy, fool proof and amazing flavour!!! Will be making lamb this way from now on"

Ingredients

Are you making this? 
2 Lamb Shanks; (approx. 14 oz each)

5 sprigs fresh Rosemary; (up to 6 sprigs)

Servings  

Preparation

Preheat oven to 450? F (205? C).

Line an oven baking dish or pan with foil and place the lamb shanks within. Sprinkle olive oil over the flesh to coat so the spices stick (1-2 tbsps), and then sprinkle with salt and pepper.

Roast uncovered in the hot oven for 30 minutes. Remove the pan and turn oven down to 200? F (93? C).

Spread the Garlic, Rosemary and Thyme evenly around the Lamb shanks. Close the foil to seal in all juices and then wrap again in foil to ensure that it is well sealed.

Cook slowly for three (3) hours in the slow oven.

Scrape off the spices and serve. Strain the juice and pour over the meat. Serve with favourite potatoes and vegetables. Tender and delicious!

Ok, so I varied it a bit, did not use the oven at all! Plonked it straight into the crock pot, cooked it on high for 3 1/2 hrs, meat fell off the bone, super delicious, guests v impressed. Thanks for the recipe:)

I've successfully made this dish so many times now, it comes highly recommended! I've recently substituted the rosemary and thyme for mint which works equally well.
