Garlic Lamb Shank with Potatoes

When talking about “lamb” we’re thinking about moist, well flavored, savory meat. Pair it with potatoes and cover both with an acidic and slightly hot garlic and lemon sauce. Cooking them together lends potatoes some of the lamb aromas, making them an irresistible roast combo. Feel free to serve this on a bed of refreshing greens.

Well, I love to eat! I guess I always did. Tasty foods, traditional foods, fast-foods, healthy foods and, again, not so healthy ones. You name it.
