Lamb Shanks

Lamb Shanks are a very flavourful part of the lamb and will have your taste buds dancing in excitement.  It seems like no matter what you make with Lamb, guests and family go crazy when they hear lamb is on the menu. You can serve with mashed potatoes, polenta, roasted root veggies, or your favourite side dish.

Making lamb shanks is the ultimate in “Set it and forget it” all you need to do is sear the lamb, add the liquid and slap it in the oven for 2 hours!  

When it comes out of the oven place the Lamb Shanks aside. Strain the liquid and reduce, when a sauce consistency is reached add a tablespoon or two of your cannabis butter, and stir. Combine this with our Goats Cheese and Chive Mashed Potatoes and you’ll have a wonderful meal filled with medicated goodness ☺
