Cooking a Lamb shank

Slow cooking a Lamb shank in the oven makes for very tender and delicious meat

We helped out a friend of ours who is a shepherd and got a Lamb shank as a thank you. He gave us the tip to slow cook the Lamb shank and we cooked it right away.

First I seared the Lamb shank all around in butter and put it in an oven dish in the oven. Unfortunately my oven only starts at 100°C, so I used that for the Lamb shank. Slow cooking should be done at 80 – 90°C for somewhere between 8 – 10 hours. I figured about 6 hours would be enough when cooked at 100°C. I forgot to put the garlic in with the Lamb shank, so I put it in with the Lamb shank later.

The 6 hours in the oven turned out to be a bit long at that temperature. The lamb shank was a bit dark and a bit crisp at the outside, but the meat was very tender and so delicious.

All in all this is a very easy way to cook up some meat with little effort. Next time I should cook it a little bit shorter and maybe it would be better to pore some olive oil over the meat from time to time wile it is cooking in the oven.
