cooked lamb shank

GrillNextDoor Mar 28, 2008 02:56 PM

My extra freezer died a couple of weeks ago. I rescued and cooked most of the large amount of meat that was in it, but without thinking much. Now I have several lamb shanks that were cooked in the crock-pot with some onion, tomato and red wine frozen in the (new) freezer. Any ideas of what I could use them for? Shredded up in something? Thanks!

    Strip off the meat and return it to the sauce you already have with a little garlic, savory or thyme, white beans, and some chopped greens. Let it all simmer awhile and then call me when it's ready!

      Sounds like you're already half-way there - my favorite spaghetti sauce is made with lamb shanks (finely chopped off the bone) with sausage, and sometimes ground beef, maybe even a can of chicken broth to really make it rich. (To paraphrase Charlie Trotter, sometimes overkill is exactly what you want.)
