How To I Make Lamb Shanks In The Instant Pot?
Lamb shanks only need to cook in the instant pot for 40 minutes on high. Season the Aussie lamb shank with a generous pinch of salt and a few cracks of pepper all over. Sear the lamb shanks until crusty on all sides. This will add lots of flavor to the dish.
Remove the Aussie lamb shanks and cook the veggies until soft and add 1 tablespoon of red curry paste. Then add the coconut milk to the instant pot along with a cinnamon stick, the lamb shanks, and enough beef broth to come up 2/3 of the way up the side of the lamb shanks.
Pressure cook on high for 40 minutes and the lamb shanks are ready.
What Do I Serve With Lamb Shanks?
Lamb shanks are rich and meaty, so it’s nice to serve them with something fresh, crunchy, and tangy. Try some of these side dish recipes to serve with the Aussie lamb shanks.
