Low and Slow Lamb Shanks

These restaurant-quality low and slow lamb shanks are super easy to whip together and will make you think twice before ordering shanks on your next night out.


  • 6 Lamb shanks
  • 2 onions
  • 1 bottle of cheap red wine
  • 1 litre of vegetable stock
  • salt and pepper


  • Fire up your Z Grill pellet smoker and preheat to 190°C.
  • Season shanks well and sear in a heavy and oven-safe pot. A Dutch oven or cast iron pot will be perfect for this. You can do this in your Z Grill at high but it will be much easier to perform this step on your kitchen stove.
  • Once your Z Grill is up to temperature and you have a lovely brown colour on the surface of the shanks, add the wine and stock into your pot and place it in your Z Grill with the lid on.
  • After 2 hours remove the lid and continue to cook on the Z Grill for another 2 hours.
  • For bigger shanks it may need another 20-30 minutes. You want the meat to almost be falling off the bone.
  • Remove shanks and reduce leftover liquid on a stove. You can optionally add some flour to thicken the gravy at this step.
  • Shanks are best served with a bed of mash and some greens on the side.

This option often costs significantly less than home deliveries especially for non-metro areas.

You will receive the exact pick up address once your order is ready for pick up. As part of our agreement with our partnering freight companies, we are not to share the exact pickup location prior to that.

Our grills will fit in most hatchback vehicles and UTEs, however it may struggle to fit in a standard sedan. If you want to be sure, you can check out the dimensions of the boxes on our packing and freight page.
