Increasingly popular with chefs, flavoursome lamb shanks are cut from the end of the leg. They’ll reward slow, gentle cooking with delicious, tender meat that really does fall off the bone.
Greendale lamb comes from our own flock of breeding ewes, which are predominantly traditional breeds such as Suffolk's and continental X's. After enjoying spring and summer grazing on the rich pasture at our East Devon farm, our lambs are carefully selected when they reach the correct weight - they travel just eight miles to a local abattoir, the short journey helping to keep stress to a minimum. Hung for a minimum of ten days, the meat becomes even more flavoursome and tender. Our master butchers then prepare it on-site at Greendale Farm Shop, skilfully turning it into plump chops, classic roasts, burgers, meatballs and much, much more.
Good things come to those who wait! It takes a little patience to cook lamb shanks properly, but a long, gentle braising will allow the muscle tissue, fat and bone marrow to melt and meld into mouth-watering tenderness.
Preheat your oven to 170°C/gas mark 2. Heat a little oil in a heavy pan and add the lamb shanks, cooking over a high heat for a few minutes on each side until nicely browned. Peel and quarter red onions and place in a casserole dish with the browned meat; mix red wine, stock and your choice of herbs, then add to the casserole dish, ensuring the contents are well covered. Place the uncovered dish in the oven for 3-4 hrs, until the meat is meltingly tender and the onions have caramelised.
