    @Springram I am largely following the advice posted by Little Steven yesterday. Coated the lamb with a mix of EVOO, garlic, parsley rosemary, kosher salt, black pepper. Seared the lamb in the dutch oven first, then moved to the grill. After browning, moved off the grill back to the pan. Added a mix of chopped celery, carrots, onions, and a half bell pepper to the dutch oven and sautéed. Then added some tomato paste. Then added 1C each of Chicken Stock/Beef Stock/Red Wine. I have a mix of root vegetables in there the lamb is resting on, onions, carrots, turnips, potatoes. My first time doing this one, so we'll see. Oh, I am holding the temp around 300*.

    Also should have mentioned, the lid is on the dutch oven once the lamb is in.

  • Mine are just sitting in the rub. Yours look big...American? I'm just gonna go with a straight hot grill for the sear. I'm going to leave the lid off the tajine for a while. Probably won't make much difference but going to give it a try, maybe enrich the gravy a bit.

    @Little Steven, yes mine are much larger than yours looked like. I never bought lamb shanks before, these were at the local farmer's market, assuming they are "American" since I am in America? I didn't know there were different styles...

  • New Zealand lamb is very popular here. The Canadian lamb shanks are much bigger than the NZ ones. Canadian stuff is way more flavourful IMHO and I expect it would be the same with the US stuff.

    Just checked it, looks like it is done. My folks will be here in 20 min or so, so I shut down the egg.

  • Dayum that looks great. I was going to do some chicken bombs today but woke up with the worst head cold I've had in probably at least 10 years.  The wife used the kitchen clock to make chili and chicken and dumplings which would have been fine if I could taste them.  Thank you for letting me live vicariously through you today.  Nicely done!!
