ISO Lamb Shanks in Pasadena area?

The Oracle Mar 25, 2011 03:16 PM

I'm thinking Whole Foods would have it, but I'm hoping to find it at a less expensive price (if possible). Has anyone seen lamb shanks in the Pasadena area lately? (Non-marinated)

      Bristol Farms has very nice lamb shanks...sometimes at a good price!

        Discovered a few years ago that whenever we have a spate of cocooning-type weather, stores run out of lamb shanks around here. A prolonged cold snap some time back had me thinking about cassoulet, and apparently I was not the only one. I wound up getting lamb neck from Bristol Farms in South Pas, which turned into the best cassoulet ever.

        One tip about shanks, if you didn't know: the smaller foreshanks are a lot meatier per pound than the drumstick-shaped hind shanks, and tastier as well.

        HOWS had a big supply of them last time I bought meat, which was Wednesday I believe.
