    Jewelies's Note:

    Adaped from an Iain Hewitson's recipe. The original recipe is simmered on the stove top and uses cubed lamb. I cooked this with lamb shanks and it worked perfectly. Personally I prefer to cook a recipe like this in the oven.

      This is an excellent recipe!!! I love all the flavours and how well they all come together. I too just simmered it on the stove top like Jan and the shanks were perfectly cooked with the meat falling off the bone. I did use a fennel bulb and loved the use of it in this recipe. I also loved the spice that came through from the sambal oelek. I served ours over couscous and it made for a truly delicious meal and one that I have had requests to be made again soon. Cheers Jewelies

      I made this for dinner tonight and served over mashed potatoes. I simmered it on the stove top and omitted the fennel bulb as we didn't have one. It's a really delicious lamb shank recipe thanks Jewelies. After taking a photo, I sprinkled some preserved lemon and toasted pine nuts over it too.
