Smoked, braised lamb shoulder shanks with chorizo and pinto beans

StormbringerStormbringer Posts: 1,686
First post for a while, I've been in Switzerland a lot and also things have changed somewhat. More about that at the weekend. For now, some lovely lamb shoulder shanks (yes, that was new to me too) braised in a red wine sauce with onions, carrots and celery and smoked over apple with spicy chorizo and pinto beans. Full recipe here:

Before getting into the Egg, some searing and simmering:


The meat shrunk a bit:


Not exactly the most photogenic meal I've cooked, SWMBO made the best of bad presentation:


Thanks for looking! :)

    Very much so. Lamb shoulder shanks have a richer flavour to them than normal shanks, so the chorizo worked well in complementing. The pinto beans were there for texture.

    Washed down with a lovely Corbieres, an equivalent wine stateside would be a GSM such as Tablas Creek "Cotes de Tablas".
