Lamb Shanks with Orzo

Score one for comforting and decadent, all wrapped up in one tender package.

This recipe (from Foolproof) calls for one lamb shank per serving, but that is about twice as much as we wanted to eat.  This would be a good introduction to lamb for someone who is hesitant to try it. It’s tender, and doesn’t have the strong flavor of lamb that other cuts and recipes have.  The fact that it braises for a couple of hours would make it great for entertaining, too – there’s very little guess-work and virtually no last-minute preparation. Besides, who doesn’t love serving up a Fred Flintstone-like shank to friends and family?

Completed/Remaining: 409/277
