1 - small sweet onion minced fine
giant carrots
small potatoes
a little bit of rosemary
a tiny bit of thyme
salt
pepper
olive oil
chicken stock

In a large pot, saute the onion, garlic, rosemary, thyme, and pepper until the onion is soft and has a bit of color on it.
Add the chicken stock and the lamb shanks.
Add a lot of water to the pot.
Bring to full boil, then reduce heat and allow to simmer for about 3 hours.
Add the carrot and potato, continue cooking until carrot and potato are done.
Remove lamb, carrot, and potato from pot, bring remaining liquid to boil and reduce to a thick sauce.
Serve over couscous.

don't let that oil smoke or you'll get off flavors

i always add garlic+herbs in the last minute of the onion cooking...you don't find they're overdone this way?

Garlic has a tendency to burn which is why most recipes will have you sautee the onion for a couple minutes before adding the garlic. If you're working to carmelize the onion, definitely wait on adding the garlic; burnt garlic is nasty.

^ Yes.

That's why I listed the ingredients in the order I did above. Obviously not clear enough.

And yes, burnt garlic is nasty.

I will be doing the lamb shanks probably Tuesday 06/30, and then a rack of lamb Wednesday 07/01. (Sunday will most likely be Wild Argentine Shrimp stir-fry, and Monday most likely wild halibut filet or wild salmon filet - yet to be determined - depends on what looks best at Northern Fish Saturday morning. Might opt for Penn Cove mussels and fettucine instead of the shrimp.)

Stay tuned.  wink.gif
