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.

Ingredients

  • 2 Aussie lamb shanks
  • ½ teaspoon mustard seeds
  • ½ an onion chopped
  • 2 carrots peeled & chopped
  • 2 stalks celery chopped
  • ½ teaspoon dried thyme
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tablespoon red curry paste
  • 1 can full fat coconut milk
  • 1-2 cups beef stock/broth
  • 4 dates pitted and sliced
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 lime
  • 2-3 tablespoons coconut cream
  • Kosher salt & fresh pepper
  • Olive or avocado oil

Instructions

  1. Season the Aussie lamb shanks with a generous pinch of salt and a few cracks of pepper all over. Sear the lamb shanks on the highest sauté setting of the instant pot until well browned on all sides, about 8 minutes. Remove the Aussie lamb from the instant pot and add the mustard seeds. Lower the sauté setting to medium and toast the seeds for 1 minute. Add the onion, carrots, celery, thyme, along with ½ teaspoon salt, and few cracks of pepper. Cook for 8 minutes then add the garlic and cook for 3 minutes more. You can always turn the heat setting down on the instant pot if the veggies are taking on too much color.
  2. Add the curry paste and cook for 1 minute then add the coconut milk and stir well. Add the Aussie lamb shanks back to the instant pot along with the dates, cinnamon stick, bay leaf, and enough beef stock to come 2/3 the way up the side of the lamb. Add another ¼ teaspoon salt and a few cracks of pepper and set the instant pot to pressure cook on high for 45 minutes.
  3. Once the time is up, allow the instant pot rest for 10 minutes and then release the pressure manually. Remove the lamb shanks and reduce the cooking liquid by turning the sauté setting to high. Allow to simmer and reduce by half and then add 2 tablespoons of coconut cream and stir well. If the sauce is not thick enough, add another tablespoon of cream. Check for seasoning and add enough lime juice to make the sauce tangy. Strain the sauce into a clean bowl and discard the solids.
  4. Serve the Aussie lamb shanks with sauce and enjoy!
