Lamb Shank Vindaloo Recipe

Posted on 07 February 2019

Ingredients

  • 4 lamb shanks
  • 1/2 cup cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 tablespoon tamarind concentrate
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons garam masala
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 8 cloves garlic, peeled
  • 1/3 cup sliced fresh ginger
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cayenne pepper
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons paprika
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon ground mustard
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 3 tablespoons ghee (clarified butter)
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • salt and ground black pepper to taste
  • 4 teaspoons brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro, for garnish (optional)

Directions

  1. Place lamb shanks in a large resealable plastic bag. Whisk together cider vinegar, oil, salt, tamarind concentrate, and garam masala in a bowl, and pour into the bag. Squeeze out excess air and seal the bag. Marinate in the refrigerator for 8 hours or overnight.
  2. Preheat an oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C). Grease a foil-lined baking sheet.
  3. Remove marinated lamb shanks and place on the prepared baking sheet. Season all sides with salt. Roast in the preheated oven until well-browned, 15 to 20 minutes. Reserve marinade in the bag.
  4. Combine 1 onion, garlic, ginger, cherry tomatoes, and water in a blender and pulse on and off until smooth. Set aside.
  5. Combine cayenne pepper, paprika, cinnamon, cumin, dried mustard, and black pepper in a small bowl.
  6. Melt clarified butter in a large stockpot over medium-high heat. Cook and stir 1 onion until softened and well-browned, about 30 minutes. Reduce heat to medium and pour in cayenne pepper mixture. Cook and stir until spices are aromatic, about 2 minutes.
  7. Pour marinade from the bag into the stockpot, and stir in tomato-onion mixture and brown sugar. Bring mixture to a simmer. Place lamb shanks in the pan and reduce heat to low. Cover and cook, turning occasionally, until meat is tender and easily pierced with a fork, 3 to 4 hours.
  8. Remove lamb from the pot and cover with foil. Increase heat and simmer the sauce for a few minutes, skimming the fat from the top. Taste and add salt if needed. Serve lamb shanks with sauce spooned over the top. Garnish with cilantro.
