This was by far the BEST lamb shank I have ever eaten and I'm a big foodie! I have yet to find a restaurant that can serve lamb this tasty. I'm lucky enough to have a husband who, on his off day, made this for me and I could still smell the wonderful aromas by the time we went to bed. The flavors were incredible. It was FANTASTIC. Thank you for sharing this.
Just finished eating it and loved it. I thought the flavours were excellent and the meat was beautifully tender. I did make a few changes to the way i made it. I didnt get any kefalotiri cheese but did have a hard goats cheese which i like so i used that and also i cooked it for about 4 and a half hours at 100C. The only downside was the amount of fat that had melted out of the lamb which i had to skim off before serving
i've made this numerous times, and each time, people just rave about it. however, i do make a few changes, sorry. i always do that, but i just added a teaspoon of cumin, and i substituted feta for the kefalotiri. in any case, it's a great recipe, and it turns out fantastic, even once when i wrapped it in foil packets and cooked it on the grill over indirect heat. thanks so much for a recipe i now make regularly.
We enjoyed this very much, though I found it slightly bland, I may will increase the spices a little bit. The only thing I subbed was to use parmesan cheese, otherwise followed it exactly. Thank you.
Talk about yum!!! Evelyn, thank you so much for this recipe! Now, if I can only find kefalotiri or kefalograviera for next time, it will be perfect! Definitely a keeper!!!!
You would have laughed to see me high-stepping it through the snow to see if the oregano and mint had survived our very cold snap. They didn't. But, hey, this is rebel lamb, and I made do. I had bought a 3 lb. package of cut-up bone-in lamb (I suspect shoulder), but pretty much used all the rest of the ingredients, except the potatoes (used 2, more did not fit into pot) and used only enough olive oil to grease the casserole. About 2 1/2 hr. into it we could not wait, and pulled out potatoes, onions, and smaller chunks of meat, plus some of the unbelievable gravy. Garlic was still hard. I went ahead and put in a couple of more potatoes. Next time I make this, I will make it a day ahead of time, as the lamb releases an awful lot of fat. I'd chill and remove it, and then reheat.
Evelyn you've done it again....amazing! Every recipe of yours that I have served has gone down a treat. This was easy to do, smelt delicious and pleased everyone. I didn't put any cheese in and left the potatoes and carrots out. I wrapped the chops in a double layer of foil making an enverlope, which worked really well. Next time I will do it exactly as the recipe says, but I had already promised Greek Potatoes and herb glazed carrots to the children. I didn't manage to take a photograph as once plated up, it was whisked away to the table and eaten before i could switch the camera on..maybe next time ;-) Thank you!
I am going to try this dish (without the cheese-as I only eat kosher..ie.don't mix milk & meat) . It sounds really tasty. When I eventually make it will rate it as well.
