I got this recipe from the newspaper years ago, and make it frequently. I serve it with my cucumber yogurt sauce, which I'm also posting. Be warned- It is very garlicky. Also, use less pepper if you're using all beef instead of lamb.
This is one of the most succulent lamb dishes you will ever taste. Long slow cooking makes the dish. This is an adopted recipe from the RecipeZaar account, and I am delighted to be the new owner of such a winning recipe. The size of your leg of lamb is everything in this recipe so please use the Zaar measurement converter ( bottom of the page) to calculate your cooking time as if will vary greatly if you have a very small or very large leg of lamb. (For example 2.8 kg leg = 6.1 lb and would cook for just over 6 hours after the browning stage) If you like this sort of meat, then I'd also recommend my recipe "New Zealand High Country Sheep Station Roast Lamb #186000" because it gives a similar result with fewer steps... (admittedly without the excellent gravy though) Since my home country that my DH jokingly calls Kiwistaan has an excellent reputation for Lamb, I will be assigning this one to ZWT REGION: New Zealand.
This recipe came from one of the first cookbooks I ever bought, "Casserole Cookbook". The price is still on the cover-$1.25- so you can only imagine how many years I have been cooking and enjoying these shanks.
Known in Afghanistan as quabili pilau, this is a delicious and festive dish.
A combination of several quabili recipes that I found online and made my own, my inspiration coming from an Afghani family in town that operates a food cart from which they sell the most delightful Afghani food. This is truly a perfect example of the best fusion of Asian and Arabic ingredients.
Proof that low fat and low cholesterol can be delicious! Lamb is horribly expensive in Australia at the moment, so I just use whatever cut is cheapest at the supermarket that week! Easy to make and looks great; taken from the best Aussie food magazine, Super Food Ideas.
