DIRECTIONS

  • Mix the paprika, cumin, cardamom, cinnamon, allspice, cloves, salt, and pepper in a bowl. Rub the spice mix into the lamb shanks creating a spice covering that coats the lamb completely. Set aside 10 minutes.
  • Heat the oil over medium heat in a large lidded saucepan. Add the onions and begin to brown them stirring occasionally. Add the plums that you have pitted along with the sugar and cook for a few minutes with the onions. Remove the onions and plums with a slotted spoon and add the seasoned lamb to the saucepan oven and brown the lamb well on all sides.
  • Add the white wine and cook down by half. Add the hot stock and return the onions and plums to the pot. Adjust the seasoning, set at a simmer, cover and cook for 90-120 minutes or until the lamb is fork tender. Serve with saffron rice.
