    the cut of meat featured here is a lamb foreshank. do yourselves a favor and get hindshanks instead. hindshanks are actually the bottom end of a leg of lamb. a lot more meat. 2-3 foreshanks equals 1 hindshank as far as food volume.

    Would this work with venison shanks?

  • Georgie M on December 4, 2018

    Seriously what's up with you and NOT using your hands to season the meat? It's so annoying and unsettling

  • Brad Berry on December 4, 2018

    Would Guinness draught work well with this?

    When I cooked this recipe the second time I used whipped cauliflower instead of potatoes. The recipe is excellent both ways.

    Any tips for sourcing cheap lamb shanks ?, also what substitutions would you make if you were using lamb shivs ?

  • maylien on December 4, 2018

    Thank you so much. I made these for Easter this year. But since I was serving 8 adults, I needed to do them in the oven in my roasting pan covered tightly with heavy foil. I did all sauteing in a pan on stove top in batches. Same timing but I only tripled the rest of the ingredients. After meat browned, I discarded the fat (actually gave to our chickens as lamb is one of their Natural Foods) and sauteed the veggies in olive oil. 2 hours first braise, cool and chill and de-fat. 1 hour the next day. They REALLY needed the fat discarded, it was So strong! But after I did they were excellent. All guests Loved!

  • wilakt4fud on December 4, 2018

    This may be a silly question, but is there any mileage in giving a cut of meat a quick sear again AFTER it comes out of a braise? Just to add a nice “bark”?

  • Robert Greenhouse on December 4, 2018

    The difference in appearance before and after he garnished w green onions is staggering

  • Wolfferoni on December 4, 2018

    My mum did something similar once but she cooked it in an oven. Pretty much just threw everything in and cooked it all at once. Only problem – she put in one beer for each lamb shank. So you can imagine how bitter and strong it was, as well as too gamey for my taste. So this method is what I'm going to try next, hopefully it will be much better!

  • ryant67 on December 4, 2018

    Good recipe – reckon I'll keep the lamb fat and use it to make some confit potatoes too!

  • Trent Gerein on December 4, 2018

    Too bad lamb Saskatchewan is $25 per pound.

  • Daniel Gruza on December 4, 2018

    Hi Chef John! Would Browning the shanks under the broiler help solve the irregular surface problem? Or would the heat cook them too much on the inside?

  • Jan Verschueren on December 4, 2018

    Who's also thinking this would be amazing with cider instead of beer?
