Slow Cooked Lamb Shanks with Asian flavours
  1. Pre-heat oven to 180°C
  2. Combine flour and black pepper and roll lamb shanks in the seasoned flour
  3. Heat the oil in a large non-stick fry pan over medium heat
  4. Add the meat and brown well on all sides, taking care not to burn. Transfer to a plate and set aside
  5. Add the onion, garlic and chilli flakes to the pan and cook for a few minutes until the onion starts to soften. Transfer the lamb shanks, onion mixture, capsicum and squash to an oven-proof casserole dish with a lid, or to a slow cooker
  6. Add the stock, vinegar, Sweet Soy Sauce, pepper, star anise and cinnamon stick
  7. Cover and place in oven for about 1 1/2 hours, or to a slow cooker on medium for 4-6 hours, until the meat is almost falling off the bone
Tips & Hints:
  • Serve with mashed potato and steamed baby carrots
  • Frenched lamb shanks are shanks where the excess fat and tendons have been removed from the top of the shank. Your butcher will do this for you.
  • Variation: Kikkoman Teriyaki Marinade & Sauce or Kikkoman Honey Soy can be substituted if desired
