Oven baked lamb shank with mixed vegetables, delicious!
I always bake lamb in this simple fashion, brushed with mustard, salt and pepper, lots of rosemary and thyme, and I poke many holes in the meat that I fill with garlic cloves.
I like lamb shank well done so I cooked this 42.32 oz (1.2 kg) for about 1 hour, that’s about 15 minutes per 10.5 oz. (300 g.)
I served it with a mix of fresh carrots and pumpkin and a mix of frozen peas and mixed mushrooms simply sautéed in olive oil and baked my potatoes together with the lamb, very flavorful.
About cooking vegetables, except for green beans for example, I don’t like to drawn vegetables in water. Most vegetables contain enough water to be sautéed only in olive oil and about an inch of water, sprinkle them with salt at the start, that will help them release their own water, always add an inch of water when/if needed. Cooked in this manner, you will find your vegetables so tasty, and although cooked through, they will hold their shape.
I always stuff my freezer with bags of frozen raw vegetable mixes, and I tend to use a handful of these or those and mix them with fresh vegetables. Specially, I always have bags of Paris mushrooms, diced tomatoes, chopped shallots, chopped parsley, green peas, these are a staple in my house. I find it’s an easy way to feed my family their 5 vegetables a day and it’s so handy.
