Slow-Cooked Lamb Knuckles

Lamb knuckles and crispy baked potatoes
The days are getting cooler and I raided the freezer for a wintery cut of meat. Double this recipe of Lamb knuckles and crispy baked potatoes for 6-8 people. My recipe serves 4
The meat was perfectly cooked at 150°C for 2 hours. Definitely a low and slow method I recommend for fall off the bone meat but still keeps its shape and texture without disintegration into a mooshy mush.

  • Ingredients list follow the photos...
  • Splash a generous glug of olive oil to a heavy based pot that can also go into the oven. In a bowl add 2 Tbls of flour, 1/2tsp salt, good crack of pepper and 1 tsp oreganum
  • I bought 730g lamb knuckles from Woolies. Coat the lamb both sides in the seasoned flour
  • Add to the pan of hot oil
  • Brown on both sides about 2-3 min per side remove and set aside
  • Get your scrubbed potatoes on the boil in salted water for about 25 min
  • Chop 2 stalks of celery and 1 onion. Grate 2 carrots and finely slice the other 2
  • In the same pan the meat was browning add the onion and fry for 2 min
  • Add 3 smashed garlic cloves and fry for 1 min
  • Add the celery and carrots
  • Add 2 tsps of dried oreganum
  • Add more olive oil if pan looks too dry. Add 1 Tbls chicken stock. This is a liquid version from Nomu. Ina Paarman or similar is fine too.
  • measure out the wine
  • Add 1/2 cup white wine to deglaze the pot . The alcohol evaporates and you are left with the flavour
  • Add 4 stalks of fresh rosemary and the chopped parsley
  • Add 150g green beans that have been top and tailed
  • Add 1 cup water
  • Return the knuckles back to the pot
  • Mix to coat and turn them over an coat with veg mix. Put lid on and place in preheated oven at a low temperature of 150°C for 1 hour. Go away and clean the windows in the meantime
  • Back to the potatoes - After 25 min add about 70-80 gram of topped and tailed green beans cook for a further 8-10 minutes
  • After an hour in the oven check on lamb. It will still be fairly firm. Most of the liquid will have evaporated.
  • Add another cup of water and replace lid and continue to cook for another hour
  • After 2 hours in the oven return to stove. Just before you are about to serve add tin of cannellini beans
  • Add 2 chopped fresh tomatoes and 1 tsps of Oreganum
  • And 1/2 tin of water
