Did you know? The shank is the cut of lamb taken from the lower section of the animal’s legs and can be from the front legs (foreshank) or the back legs (hind shank). The foreshank may include part of the shoulder, as well as part of the leg, while the hind shank will include only part of the rear leg. Lamb shanks have a paper-thin membrane covering and a thin layer of fat and are leaner than the sirloin part of a lamb. Typically, the membrane should be removed before cooking to help the meat to become more tender.

For another variation why not try a greek style Lamb Shank recipe?  For leftovers, this pie recipe is also delightful.



Happy Cooking!
