  • Summary

    This Flintstonian cut is impressive, and the bone lends flavor as the meat braises. But if you prefer, a boneless tied leg of lamb is a little more manageable and cooks more quickly.

    Ingredients

    • 1 (6-pound) bone-in leg of lamb, shank attached, frenched
    • Kosher salt, freshly ground pepper
    • 2 tablespoons cumin seeds
    • 2 teaspoons caraway seeds
    • 2 teaspoons coriander seeds
    • 2 Thai chiles, very finely chopped
    • 4 garlic cloves, finely grated
    • 1/2 cup olive oil
    • 1 tablespoon paprika
    • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    • 1/2 teaspoon caraway seeds
    • 1/2 teaspoon coriander seeds
    • 1/4 cup olive oil
    • 1 large onion, thinly sliced
    • 1 tablespoon ancho chile powder
    • 1 tablespoon chipotle chile powder
    • 1 teaspoon ground turmeric
    • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
    • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    • 1 (28-ounce) can crushed tomatoes
    • 4 cups low-sodium chicken broth
