Oogie's Mutton Shank Stoup

Oogie's Mutton Shank Stoup

I don't have a crockpot but do lots of slow cooked things in the oven, here's one for mutton shanks, also works with lamb shanks, elk or venison shanks and one for a curry stew that works with just about any meat as well.

4-6 Mutton Shanks
1-2 Diced Onions
8-10 Peeled Garlic Cloves
8-10 Tomatoes peeled and stems cut off
1 to 1-1/2 cups Dried Garbanzo Beans
3-4 Bay Leaves

(spices below are approximates)
1/4 cup ground Cardamon
1 tsp ground Cayenne Pepper
1-3 tbsp ground Cumin
1-3 tbsp ground Paprika
1 tsp ground Allspice

In a cast iron dutch oven brown mutton shanks and diced onion in a small amount of oil. Once the onions are soft add the garlic cloves and brown lightly. Add the tomatoes, garbanzo beans and bay leaves with enough water or water and some beer to fill pot and fully cover everything. Bake covered in a 250°F-275°F oven for 4-6 hours (or more) until tender stirring occasionally. You may have to add additional water as it cooks.

1 Hour before serving add chopped Oregano, Parsley, fresh if you have it, and the ground spices. Amounts will vary according to amount of meat and your tastes. Go lightly on the Cayenne and Cumin until you are sure you like it. Serve with a hearty homemade bread for a stew/soup that can't be beat.
