Ingredients
  

  • 2 lamb shanks
  • 1/2 tbsp lard
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup chicken stock

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 150 deg C (300 deg F).
  • Pat dry the lamb shanks and rub the salt on all sides.
  • Melt the lard in a large pan on the hob.
  • Sear all sides of both the lamb shanks to brown. You might need to hold the shanks in place to get them browned on all the sides.
  • Remove the shanks and set them aside.
  • Let the frying pan cool a little.
    Pour the chicken stock into the pan and use a fish slice to scrape off any browned bits stuck to the bottom.
  • Scrape the chicken stock from the frying pan into a baking tray with high sides.
  • Add the browned shanks to the baking tray.
  • Cover the baking tray with aluminium foil. Try to make it a closed environment, no holes, and tented so the foil doesn't touch the shanks.
  • Place in the oven and bake for 3 hours – no peaking!
  • Serve with the juices as a gravy.
