Braised Lamb Shanks's picture
Braised lamb shanks is a slow cooked meat dish that can be served with rice or flatbreads. Spicy and rich, this lamb shanks preparation is flavored with parsley and curry powder along with a dash of cayenne for the heat. A milder version can be easily achieved with a less use of hot spices.

Coat lamb shanks on all sides in seasoned flour.
Brown evenly in hot oil.
