Lamb wing shank stew
These cold snowy days , we need hot healthy, uncomplicated comfort food for our dinner, A steamy pot of stew is always welcome in this freezing weather. Our garden looks just like a white Winter land. I had to be at home as our drive way is frozen, luckily I had a lots of food shopping on Friday, 18th of January.
Prefer lamb shank is too expensive at the moment but I found cheaper , wing shank of lamb, I have cooked before with red wine and tomatoes and a lot of vegetables. I decided make spicy stew more like curry taste but not too strong. it was greatly received by our family.
It is a good for the long slow cook in the oven, looks very tasty. Accompany with green salad and rice or cooked barley would be a healthy option.
The weather carries on like this , no doubt I will cook this lamb shank stew again.
500g Lamb wing shank, 1 onion chopped, 3 celery sticks chopped, 2 tsp chopped garlic, 1tsp grated ginger, 1 dry chilli, Curry spices( cumin, coriander seed, 1 cinnamon stick, curry leaves).
Heat oil in the big wok, fry lamb to brown and put in the sewing pot, cook all chopped vegetables and add to lamb, tin tomatoes, spices, garlic, ginger. pour water ( no need stock, because lamb bone on the meat will make up ) until just cover the stew.
Cook in the low oven ( 120c) for at least 3 hours) first and higher temperature( 160c) for 40 minutes.
Meat will fall off from the bone, you can take off bone and add chopped coriander and serve.
Delicious and very comforting!!
