Smoked Lamb Shank Casserole

Chopped vegetables and wine covering Lamb shanks in an uncovered baking dish sitting in a smoker, ready to cook.

This is a wonderful dish cooked in a smoker, but unlike a traditional meat cook, it is more like a smoked casserole, giving the dish a new complexity.

The lamb shanks are placed in a baking dish and then covered in vegetables and red wine. Then it is smoked until the meat is falling off the bone.

This recipe makes a nice change from the ‘traditional’ smoked meats that are most often cooked.

Ingredients

  • 8 lamb shanks
  • 1 bottle red wine cabernet sauvignon
  • 1 liter beef stock
  • 3 carrots chopped
  • 2 onions quartered
  • 1 bunch celery chopped
  • 8 mushrooms quartered
  • 3 cloves garlic crushed
  • salt and pepper to taste

Equipment

  • baking dish
  • smoker

Directions

  • Place all the ingredients together in a baking dish or similar so the lamb shanks are fully covered by the wine and vegetables.
  • Preheat the smoker to 250 degrees F (120 degrees C).
  • Cook in the smoker unwrapped for 2 to 3 hours, then wrap foil over the top to stop the juices from evaporating off, then cook for an additional 3 hours.
  • Check the meat, and continue cooking until the lamb is to your preferred doneness – typical is falling off the bone. The whole cook time should be in the order of 7 hours. For the last hour of cooking remove the foil to allow some extra juice to evaporate and the vegetables/meat to get some additional texture/color.
  • Serve the lamb shanks in shallow bowls with the thickened juices. Pairs well with mashed potatoes and/or fresh bread.
