Lamb shanks with Moroccan spices and pomegranate molasses. I love cooking lamb shanks and with another cold spell forecast for the United Kingdom this is a great recipe for chilly weather. The secret to any recipe for lamb shanks is to cook low and slow ( it will adapt easily for use with a slow-cooker ) and to ensure there are plenty of aromatic ingredients to add layers of flavour to the finished dish.
Today’s recipe is perhaps the most satisfying, a one-pot casserole, ideal after a good long walk on the cliff tops in Jersey.
There is a substantial amount of meat on a large shank enough for the largest of appetites and I would say ample for two average dinners with the addition of a selection of vegetables.
