Preparation Time: 2+ Hours
›› 1.5 kg Lamb Shanks
›› Robertsons Atlantic Sea Salt and Freshly Ground Black Pepper
›› 1 Onion finely sliced
›› 15 ml Olive Oil
›› 15 ml Balsamic Vinegar
›› 5 ml Robertsons Crushed Garlic
›› 30 ml Robertsons Barbecue Spice
›› 3 Tomatoes peeled and diced
›› 500 ml Boiling Water
›› 500 g Baby Potatoes in jackets or peeled
›› 10 Baby Marrows sliced
›› 10 Patty Pans halved
›› 400 g Fresh Mushrooms halved or sliced
›› 30 – 45 ml Corn Flour mixed to a smooth paste with a little water
›› Season the shanks lightly with Robertsons Atlantic Sea Salt and Freshly Ground Pepper and brown a few at a time in a heated potjie pot until browned all over.
›› Remove the shanks and sauté the onion in a little olive oil until soft.
›› Add the vinegar and stir through. Then add all the spices and stir-fry lightly.
›› Add the tomatoes and mix through. Return the shanks to the pot, lower the heat, add boiling water and simmer for about 1 – 1 1/2 hours until the shanks are done.

›› Season with salt and pepper to taste and another sprinkle of balsamic vinegar if you like.
