Lamb Shank

Lamb shanks practically melt off the bone when they are slow cooked, and are a popular menu item across the country. Lean on fat but big on flavor, the meaty shank is perfect for braising in a slow, simmering broth. Great cooked in a dutch oven or instant pot.

Each Package is approximately 2 Lbs.

Braised Lamb Shanks

2 lbs KY Lamb Shanks, 2-4 bones

4 sprigs of rosemary, minced

4 bay leaves

4 sprigs of thyme, minced

1 large onion, quartered

4 carrots, chopped

2 celery stalks, chopped

2 T tomato paste

1 C wine, we use merlot

1 can diced tomatoes

1 C beef broth


Marinade shanks in a drizzle of olive oil, and spices for 4 hours, up to overnight for best flavors. See chef's notes.

Season with S&P, brown on all sides in dutch oven.

Remove the shanks and brown onion, carrots and celery until they begin to soften. Add tomato paste, cook for about a minute stirring, add wine to deglaze pot. Allow liquid to cook until reduced by 1/2.

Add tomatoes, mix and adjust seasoning as needed. You will need a generous pinch of S&P. Nestle shanks back into the liquid along with the beef stock. Cover with lid and braise in oven at 325° for 1.5/2 hours, or until fork tender.

Allow to sit until the fat comes to the surface, remove fat. Put shanks shanks in a small bowl to make gravy. Make a cornstarch slurry and add to liquid. Cook until liquid turns into a gravy.

Farm to Table Lamb - Flemingsburg, Kentucky

We’re the Schwartz Family: Zack, Margaret, and our children Bryce and Nora. Together we’re carrying on a family legacy as the 6th generation of the Schwartz Family to raise sheep. We’re raising our kids alongside our flock of sheep in Flemingsburg, KY. Zack and I started this journey wanting to share our lamb with friends and family and quickly realized we had an entire community looking to support local farms. As farmers, we spend long days on the farm, but we are blessed to be able to raise our children on a farm where they can explore and learn some of life’s best lessons. After all, we are raising the next generation of agriculture. Our family, feeding your family. 

We’re proud to be able to supply your families with locally raised pork & lamb. All of our lamb is bred, born, raised, and finished on the farm. 

Our Berkshire & Duroc pork is finished on the farm, we'll be farrow to finish this fall. 

We work hard every day to raise our livestock with the best practices resulting in delicious, nutrient dense meats. 

We’re glad your here!
