Non-alcolholic lamb shank braise

  • s

Any suggestions for what to braise lamb shanks in that doesn't contain any alcohol? Yes, I know that once it's cooked, the alcohol is gone. But I need suggestions that don't contain alcohol in the first place. Verjus? Cranberry Juice?...

  1. Apple Cider, Tamarind juice (this works really well), Pear or Peach nectar or juice, almost any decent fruit nectar or juice. Add a splash of any type of vinegar or a squeeze of citrus if you need a bit of acidity and for added depth a splash of soy for the salt and umami factor.

    1. lemon juice, olive oil, garlic and oregano, with a little water and salt, bay leaf. Low heat, long braise. Greek.

      1. diced roma tomatoes, chopped garlic, chiffonade of basil, and water. Cook 1 1/2 hours. The simplest dish I make (with the possible exception of raost chicken) and one of the best.
