Lamb Shark RecipeThis simple and delicious slow cooker Lamb Shank recipe comes from our very own Coach JS!  Lamb is a great meat to cook at home, especially when using a slow cooker, the meat will just fall off the bone once it has finished cooking.  Let’s face it, after a long day at the office, cooking a big meal is probably the last thing you feel like doing. That’s the best part about using a slow cooker, you get to come home to a nice warm home cooked meal!

INGREDIENTS:
2x Lamb Chops (I get mine at Olympic Meats on Halsted and Randolph, great place)
1 Vidalia Onion
2 big handfulls of baby carrots
4 Cloves of Garlic
1 Large head of Kale
3 Cups Chicken Stock
Salt, Pepper, Dried Rosemary

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Prepare the slow cooker
    1. Throw the carrots at the bottom of the slow cooker.
    2. Tear the kale off the stems into large chunks and place on top of the carrots.
    3. Add the chicken stock.
  2. Prepare the meat
    1. Slice onion and dice the garlic (not mince, big flavorful pieces).
    2. Cook the onion and garlic in olive oil until the onion is just beginning to become translucent.
    3. While the onion/garlic is cooking, rub the lamb shanks with salt and pepper on all sides.
    4. Brown the lamb shank on all sides w/ the garlic and onion.
    5. Add the Lamb, onion and garlic to the slow cooker.  Throw some dry rosemary on top.
    6. Cook for four hours on high (or 7-8 hours on low)  When done the meat should very easily slide off the bone.
    7. Cut the meat (GIF: https://i.imgur.com/gg23Srt.webm), and serve with the veggies/broth.
