Return Lamb and Braise:

  • Soak the seared lamb hind shanks to the pot, ensuring they’re partially submerged in the broth.
  • Cover the pot with a lid and transfer it to the preheated oven.

Slow Cooking:

  • Allow the lamb hind shanks to braise in the oven for about 2 to 2.5 hours, or until the meat becomes tender and easily pulls away from the bone.


  • Carefully remove the pot from the oven.
  • Gently remove the tender braised lamb hind shanks from the pot and place them on serving plates.
  • Optionally, strain the braising liquid to create a flavorful sauce.

Garnish and Enjoy:

  • Drizzle the braising broth over the lamb hind shanks.
  • Garnish with chopped fresh parsley for a burst of color and freshness.
