Step by Step Method

Step 1

Put all 7 ingredients into a large zip lock bag and massage into the lamb shank, zip up and then refrigerate for a few hours or overnight giving the shank a massage every now and then.

Step 2

When you are ready to cook, remove the shank from the fridge for about half and hour so that it is not fridge cold.

Step 3

Heat the oven to 200C degrees and place the contents of the bag in a roasting dish and roast for about an hour or until shank is dark and sticky and well roasted for maximum flavour (this will vary depending on size of shank but 400 grams is the average we get here).

Step 4

Suggested you serve with vegetables of choice and a mash and peas goes down well too.

Easy, relatively inexpensive, and delish. Marinade needs salt--none in list of ingredients!
