lamb shanks

Made these a couple of weeks ago for the family, delicious cooked in red wine and redcurrant sauce, but very expensive..... 14 for four! They were big and really meaty but considering this used to be a cheap boiling joint, used in much the same way as ham hock, I thought this was quite expensive.

Re: lamb shanks

We LOVE Lamb shanks...soaked over night in red wine with 2 carrots 2 onions, garlic mint & thyme...then slow roasted ...ummmm.
At 3.50 a shank I would not consider that expensive at all. You pay more than that for a decent leg of lamb or a joint of beef. (in the UK)

Re: lamb shanks

Veritas - I believe that lamb shanks are now more expensive because they have been made popular by TV chefs over the past couple of years, they are now promoted eagerly as good pub grub and are always displayed on most blackboards in the pubs.

Yali Chick I think that was the point that Veritas was trying to make, they are expensive for what they are, after all they do contain a large bone and yes, you would expect to pay more, a lot more for a decent leg of lamb or a joint of beef.

Best Regards
Lily

Re: lamb shanks

yalichick, yes very tasty but they need to be slow cooked for ages unlike a roasting joint which is tender and can be served rare. Stargazerlily, you get my drift, so many of these previously cheap cuts have soared in price, flank beef, also know as skirting beef, also used to be a cheap tasty meal, as soon as it becomes popular the price goes through the roof thanks to Jamie Oliver and co.

Re: lamb shanks

sounds great but beware of the ones in pubs and restaurants, they are usually bought ready cooked in gravy and are full of additives to give a shelf life over 12 months without chilling! or to quote Gordon Ramsey sh*t in a bag

They sound delicious, I've never used redcurrant sauce when marinating/cooking ours. Did you make your own sauce?, I bet it gave the Lamb a nice tangy taste. Will do this when I next do them, I love them done for hours in the slow cooker. As others have posted, the Shank once a very cheap joint of the Lamb, but now quite expensive.

Re: lamb shanks

Where does one purchase a lamb shank in Turkey? Does anyone know the Turkish translation for lambshanks? I do not want a Google translation.

Most butchers have them displayed in their cabinet, I usually get mine from Migros.
