MEDITERRANIAN LAMB SHANKS

MEDITERRANIAN LAMB SHANKS
SERVES 6
INGREDIENTS
6 medium lamb shanks (about 4 1/2 pounds total), 3 tablespoons olive oil
1 large onion, cut into 1/2-inch pieces, 3 large carrots, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
4 celery stalks, cut into 1/2-inch pieces, 6 large garlic cloves, chopped
1 can diced tomatoes in juice, 2 1/4 cups Chicken stock or Veal Glaze
3 large fresh rosemary sprigs, 3 large fresh thyme sprigs plus 2 teaspoons minced thyme
 
PREPARATION
Preheat oven to 350°F. Season lamb with salt and pepper. Heat 2 tablespoons oil in large ovenproof pot over high heat. Add lamb; brown on all sides, about 10 minutes total. Using tongs, transfer lamb to plate. Add 1 tablespoon oil to pot. Add onion, carrots, celery, and garlic. Sauté until vegetables brown and begin to soften, scraping up browned bits, about 10 minutes. Return lamb to pot, pushing gently into vegetables. Add tomatoes, stock, rosemary sprigs, thyme sprigs, and peppercorns. Bring to boil over high heat. Cover pot; transfer to oven. Roast until meat is tender and pulls easily from bone, turning occasionally, about 2 hours.
Remove lamb and herbs from pot; discard herbs. Place pot over medium-high heat and boil until sauce is slightly thickened, about 5 minutes.
Serve with your favourite mash and pour the sauce over the top.

HAPPY CUSTOMERS
"Just wanted to let you know that you folks have allowed my husband and I to send my Daughter and Son-in-Law the perfect gifts.  We live in the US and they live in Auckland!  It's very difficult, being so far away, to know what they might need and sending things they want can be as expensive to mail as to acquire!  But everyone looks forward to having such wonderful high quality meats your company provides!  Thank you so much for your terrific quality products and outstanding service!"

Hi team, just wanted to say a big thank you for your amazing service.  I needed to cater for a dinner party and fell upon your website after searching “Gourmet Meat”.  I live in Whangarei and thought I would purchase a few different items to try and test your service before placing a large order for our party.  I was so impressed at how efficient your service was.  I ordered my meat online one day, and it was couriered from Akld to Whg the next day.  The meat arrived all professionally packaged and in excellent condition with freeze packs included in the box to keep the meat cool.  The meat itself is to die for!!!!!  Everything is as described on your website.  The price is deserving of the meat provided and very affordable, your meat is extremely superior to that offered in other butchery’s and supermarkets and more importantly is very flavoursome!  We will be ordering all our meat online from hereon in. Thanks team.

"I am just writing to in say how much I and my family enjoyed the Rolled Boned Pork which we picked up for Christmas Dinner. There was a beautiful covering of fat which was fantastic for crackling. The meat was moist and soft. 

We all agreed that it was one of the best pieces of pork that we had in a long time."
