The Festive Meal That Won't Break Your Budget
The great thing about serving lamb shanks for a holiday gathering is that they feel special, yet they're actually quite affordable. One of those cuts with a lot of muscle, the lamb holds up better when you cook it for hours and winds up deliciously tender. This recipe, from Everyday Slow Cooker, includes a gremolata—made with slow-cooked garlic, olive oil, bread crumbs, parsley and lemon zest—that adds fantastic bright flavor to the rich meat.
