Marrakesh lamb shanks



Prep Time


Cook Time



8 lamb shanks

1 tbsp olive oil

3 tsp chopped chilli

2 tsp crushed garlic

1 tbsp ground coriander

1 tsp ground turmeric

1/4 tsp ground cinnamon

1 cup vegetable stock

425 g can apricot halves


  • Heat 1 tsp olive oil in a deep-sided pan on high and brown the lamb in batches, removing each batch before adding the next. Remove and put aside.
  • Add the spices to the pan, stirring until well blended with the pan juices. Stir in the stock and juice only from the apricots. Set aside the apricots.
  • Return the lamb shanks to the pan. Reduce the heat to low, cover and simmer until tender when prodded with a fork, approximately 1.5-2 hrs. Stir occasionally.
  • If the consistency needs thickening, simmer with the lid off until reduced (about 15-20 mins). Add the apricots just before serving to heat through.
  • Serve the lamb shanks on a bed of couscous.
