Braised Lamb Shank

Falling off the bone tender – that’s how we all love our Lamb Shanks.
In our recipe, we have our shank seared in a pan before braising it in red wine on a low heat… slow and steady until it becomes fork tender! We also use lemon and parsley to make the Gremolata, a chopped herb condiment which cuts the richness of the meat.
If you’re into rich, wholesome lamb, this is one recipe you won’t want to miss out on!
