Lamb Shanks & Apricots

Lamb Shanks  & Apricots created by The Flying Chef

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.

    Would this work with dried spices/herbs?

    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
