1400 g lamb shank
2 pcs carrot
1 pc onions
1 tbsp tomato paste
2 tbsp ghee
3 pcs garlic
400 g chopped tomatoes
1 tsp fish sauce
1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
1 tsp salt
1 bunch parsley
1 tsp black pepper
2 pcs spring onions
Season the lamb shanks with salt and pepper as your heart desires. Melt 1 tablespoon of ghee over high heat over in a 6-quart pressure cooker. Sear the lamb shank for about 8-10 minutes or until brown on all sides.
Chop the onion, carrots and spring onions, and mince the garlic while the lamb is browning. Transfer the lamb shanks to a plate once they are browned.
Reduce the heat to medium and add the remaining ghee to the pressure cooker. Add the onion, spring onions and carrots, and season with salt and pepper.
Add the tomato paste and garlic once the vegetables have turned translucent and stir for a minute. Add the lamb shank back to the pot along with the chopped tomatoes.
Pour 1 cup of bone broth or beef stock (alternatively use water seasoned with bullion cubes). Add the fish sauce and vinegar, and sprinkle some pepper. Lock the lid and allow to cook under high pressure for about 50 minutes.
With the lid tightly sealed, bring the content of the pot up to high heat under high pressure. Once high pressure is reached, reduce the heat to the minimum level needed to maintain high pressure for 45 minutes.
Allow pressure to drop naturally when the shank is cooked and adjust seasoning.
Serve and garnish with chopped parsley (optional).
