  • Summary

    A frequently overlooked part of the lamb that's intensely meaty yet exceptionally mild, the shank is an unassuming cut that takes well to any number of ingredients. Dates lend it sweetness; chickpeas, sustenance; and a blend of spices, an undercurrent of warmth.

    • 3 garlic cloves, minced
    • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
    • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
