Braised Lamb Shanks

Dinner last night was juicy braised lamb shanks with homemade creamy mashed potato and steamed green beans (not pictured). Need I say more?

It was my first time cooking with lamb shanks and it was a huge success! They were juicy, moist and full of flavour. The meat was falling off of the bone. It was mouthwatering! To compliment this beautiful flavoursome meat, I whipped up some homemade creamy mashed potato and steamed some fresh green beans (not pictured). They worked so well together, I had to stop myself from overindulging in all of its finger-licking goodness. You have to try this at home! 

Braised Lamb Shanks with Creamy Mash Potato and Steamed Green Beans

8 Lamb shanks
Plain flour (for coating)
Butter/oil
3 Onions, diced 
5 Garlic cloves, sliced
3 tbsp thyme
1x400g can of crushed tomatoes
4 cups Chicken/beef stock or water
Veggie of your choice


Coat all your lamb shanks in flour evenly, shake off any excess. Melt some butter or heat up some oil on high heat. Brown off the lamb shanks and then remove from the pot and set aside.

In the same pot, melt off some butter and cook the onions and garlic until golden. Add the lamb shanks, stock, crushed tomatoes, thyme. Let it cook on medium heat for about 1hr 30mins or until the meat falls off of the bone. 

Once the lamb shanks are cooked, serve with mashed potato and top with the delicious thickened juices from the pot.
