Lamb is probably something that's not on the menu that often for most families, but lamb shanks are much more affordable than other cuts and I love the sound of these Slow-Cooker Tomatillo Braised Lamb Shanks from Katy She Cooks.  The recipe for Katy's homemade tomatillo salsa is included, but she says you can also make it with tomatillo salsa from a jar.  Katy served the tender braised lamb inside flour tortillas to make tacos, but she also recommends serving the meat over Spanish rice with the sauce spooned over the top.

  1. I never would have thought of pairing lamb with tomatillo. Such an interesting combination.

  2. Thanks for the feature, Kalyn! This is for sure one of my favorite ways to eat a cheaper cut of lamb -- my kids even love it!

  3. Lydia, I agree!

    Katy, I can surely see why they would like it; sounds great to me!
