Step by step instructions
Follow these proven steps to make this your own
Step1- Season lamb shanks
Season lamb shanks with rosemary, thyme, oregano, salt, and pepper.
Step2- Brown Shanks
Now on a stove top, heat butter in an oven proof skillet. Once it is hot add seasoned lamb shanks to it and brown each piece on both sides. Remove all of them on a plate.
Step3- Roast Garlic and Shanks
On the same skillet add peeled and unpeeled garlic. Also add green chilies to the skillet and sauté everything for a minute. Place the lamb shanks back to the skillet. Stick the bay leaf inside the skillet.
Step4- Add Water
Add 3/4 cup of water. Season once again with salt and pepper. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.
Step5- Bake Lamb Shank
Turn the heat off, cover the skillet with two or three foils to trap all its juices and aroma while cooking. Put the skillet in the oven and slow roast it for about 1 hour or until the shanks are cooked through. When the meat easily starts separating from the bone, you know that the lamb shanks are completely done.
Serve your hot and juicy lamb shanks along with some aromatic saffron rice.
Step6- Remove from Oven
Take the skillet out from the oven and remove the foil.
