The Instacart guide to lamb shank
About lamb shank
Lamb shanks come from the leg bone, just above the knee, and considered one of the most flavorful lamb portions. The leg muscles of lamb constantly get used, creating a tough and sinewy shank that needs slow-cooking techniques to make it fork-tender.
Any sheep less than a year old qualify as a lamb. Any lamb less than 3 months old can be considered a Spring lamb. As the age of an animal tends to affect the meat's flavor, the same remains true with lamb. Spring lamb is more tender than lamb but much milder in flavor. Lamb has very little fat and the color of the meat ranges from red to pink.
Any sheep older than one year gets called mutton. In the United States, mutton doesn't enjoy the same popularity as other countries, specifically those around the Mediterranean Sea. Ideally, mutton reaches the age of 3 years old before going to market. It possesses a robust flavor, a generous amount of fat content, and intense red coloring.
Greek, Italian, French, and Moroccan cultures love lamb shank because of its bold, gamey flavors. Seasoning in these parts of the world includes herbs like mint, rosemary, clove, and cinnamon that hold up well and compliment the meat's natural flavor.
