I got a bunch of lamb meat for a great deal recently, and I am hoping for some advice on a nice way to cook lamb shank. I do cook a lot, so if you have an ambitious recipe or a tip on handling this particular cut, please share!

This: http://www.chefjenn.com/2011/07/red-wine-braised-lamb-shank-gremolata.html

But leave out the rock sugar.

If you don't do rice you can serve over cauliflower puree -- just as yummy!

Whenever I take my lamb shanks out of the freezer, I always make this: http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/nigella-lawson/aromatic-lamb-shank-stew-recipe/index.html

Obviously, you need to replace/omit some things. I use ghee instead of vegetable oil, replace the honey/soy sauce/wine with 1/2 cup coconut milk (for a 2-shank stew), and forget the lentils altogether. Sometimes I'll throw in chopped mushrooms and carrots, too. Solid recipe.

I don't have a recipe to share because I'm at work, but all I can tell you is that you're in for a treat. Home braised lamb shanks are SO delicious! My favorite food--I request it every birthday and eat it as often as possible in between.
