This honey & soy braised lamb shank recipe is perfect for when you want something a bit different this winter. Sweet and sour flavours are typically used for pork and chicken, but surprisingly they work equally as well with lamb. A perfect recipe for the slow cooker. 

What You'll Need

  • 4 lamb shanks ( or however many you need. 1 per adult)
  • 125 ml honey
  • 125 ml soy sauce
  • 125 ml beef stock


  1. Place lamb shanks in an oven proof casserole dish.
  2. Mix the honey, soy sauce and beef stock together and pour over the lamb in the casserole dish.
  3. Place the lid on the casserole dish and put it in the oven.
  4. Cook on gas Mark 1, 140C, for approx 4 hours or until meat will fall off the bone as you touch it! Perfect for slow cookers.


  • Would go nicely with rice or noodles?
