Lamb Shank with Roasted Potatoes

Let’s get simpler here, without sacrificing the taste of course. This will yield up to 4 hours of your time, so if you think you have what it takes, let’s get on with it. You will generously flavor a large lamb shank with olive oil, Cajun seasoning, oregano and the like and don’t forget to pour some of your favorite white wine into the tray. This goes very well with roasted potatoes so let’s get started.

Ingredients

1 teaspoon dried chives
1 teaspoon cajun seasoning
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon thyme powder
1 lamb shank (3-4 pounds)
3 tablespoons of olive oil
1 cup white wine
8 small-medium potatoes
salt

Steps

  1. Add the chives, Cajun seasoning, garlic, oregano, and thyme to a small bowl. Mix them until even.
  2. Place the lamb shank on the work surface and coat it with 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Then rub it with the spice mixture.
  3. Line a baking tray with parchment paper and transfer the lamb shank on it.
  4. Pour the white wine directly in the tray. This way the spice coating won’t wash away.
  5. Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 3 hours at 320⁰F/160⁰C.
  6. Add the potatoes to a baking tray, poke them with a fork and drizzle with the remaining olive oil. Season with salt and bake for 30 minutes at 350⁰F/175⁰C.
