Preparing The Lamb shank


Start with Marinating your Lamb shank by adding 1 Tbsp of olive oil, then adding the spice mix (Black pepper, Paprika, Nutmeg and Meat seasoning).


Using a brush, distribute all the drizzled oil with spices to coat over all the lamb shank with the seasoning.


On a previously heated frying pan sear the lamb shank 10 mins for each side, before flipping it over to sear the other side, drizzle some more olive oil into the pan and add 2 sprigs of fresh rosemary.


Now flip it over and add 1 head of garlic and add some extra meat seasoning.


Preheat the oven on 180 degrees until the meat takes its golden color on the stove.


Prepare your preferred vegetables to add with your deliciously made lamb shank.


Clean the zucchini skin by peeling it slightly, slice the bell peppers, onions, zucchini and preferably leave the mushrooms without cutting it into slices.


Using an oven proof pan or a pyrex you should add 2 layers of foil in two different directions, flatten them well then add a baking sheet over.


Put the vegetables underneath the lamb shank.


Drizzle over the vegetables some olive oil, 1 cup of boiled water, 1 Tsp of meat seasoning, add the fresh mushrooms, 3 or 4 dried bay leaves and 4 green cardamoms, then mix all the vegetables together.


Now take the lamb shank from the frying pan and put it over the vegetables.


You can add 1 more sprig of fresh rosemary for a lovely smell and taste.


Cover the lamb shank well with the baking sheet first, then wrap over the doubled layered foil.


And put the oven pan into the oven for 1 hour on 180 degrees.


After bringing the pyrex out you can add a pinch of sea salt, some pine nuts for decoration and good taste too.
