Slow Cooker Tomatillo-Braised Lamb Shanks from Katy She Cooks

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!
