Lamb Shank

Per Kilo

Lamb shanks come from the lower part of the animal’s leg. Each side has a foreshank in the front leg and a hindshank in the rear or hind leg.

Since the legs are constantly moving, the resulting meat from this part will be tough and have lots of connective tissue. This is also why lamb shank cuts are often gamey and rich in flavor, making them ideal for more intense herbs and spices like cinnamon, mint, rosemary, and the like.

Since the shank is tough, lean, and chewy, it’s best for braising, and other slow-cook methods. Braising this lamb cut means cooking it over low heat for hours while it sits on your choice of braising liquid. This will slowly break down the toughness of the meat while also keeping it moist and juicy. The bone marrow of the lamb shank also dissolves as you braise it, which ends up mixing with the braising liquid and resulting in a rich and tasty sauce.

You can cook lamb shanks in a slow cooker or pressure cooker. Make sure the lid stays on to keep all the moisture inside. You should also consider browning or searing off the shanks before braising or slow cooking to give them additional richness.
