Just a tip(s) for the person who thought the lamb was too greasy. --Brown the lamb shanks well before placing in tomato mixture. Browning helps melt excess fat and enhances the flavor. --When done cooking cool and refrigerate overnight. Skim the excess fat from the surface then reheat. It tastes even better the second day. Love the spice combo. It really makes the dish sing.
I altered the recipe alot! I added 1 tsp chopped chillies 1 tbsp of garam masala an extra tin of tomatoes fresh cherry tomatoes & I left out the carrots and mushrooms ( I just couldn't add them to a rogan josh!) I don't have a slow cooker so I browned the lamb shank & then added the sauce & veg - simmered it for 4 hours & the meat fell off the bone. I kept the potatoes large and it took this length of time to cook them perfectly. We enjoyed it with these changes.
this was very good nothing at all like the rogan josh you get at an indian restraunt but the sauce was incredible... i used lamb steaks instead of shanks because i didnt have any shanks and the meat itself wasnt that great but thats definitely not because of the recipe.. it was just full of fat and bones... next time i will use either lamb shanks or a big lump of beef.... definitely making this again... great flavor and it smells incredible when its cooking
Confession: I gathered most of the ingredients for this at the grocery store before I arrived at the lamb section and balked at the prices (yes I'm a lamb newbie). So I made the recipe with 12 lbs. (triple batch) of beef short ribs instead for my family today (Christmas Eve). They loved it! Amazing how the ingredients still result in a very down-home midwestern beef stew impression. Nice rich blend of flavors! Good "bad weather trapped indoors" food.:) Space caveat though: took me 2 crock pots plus 1 pot on the stove (to accomodate the potatoes) to make the triple batch. Will definitely make this again! Reheats nicely with a little mozzarella and/or provolone on top.
This got 4 stars because my husband gives it 3 1/2 and I give it 4 1/2... Very easy to prepare provided you have the spices on hand. It was hard for me to imagine how this would taste but it comes together very nicely and you don't end up with any one of the flavors overpowering the others. I have a hard time imagining the person who wouldn't like this. The "broth" would also be great with beef or I could even see it with a heavier fish like salmon. We cooked this in a dutch oven for 3 hours at 350 degrees and it was perfect. We used two concentrated broth pouches instead of the bullion just out of preference. Otherwise we followed the recipe just as it is. Thanks for sharing this recipe!
This is an awsome recipe. My 9 year old even loved it. Tasted a lot like beef stew. No "gamey" lamb flavor to it. I used fresh red new potatoes and baby carrots. I also substituted the whole cardamom with 1/8 teaspoon ground cardamom since I had none whole. Excellent use of lamb shanks if you don't know what to do with them!!! Thanks!
After scanning this recipe I made changes according to what I had in the fridge (no carrots and no mushrooms). I have to say this meal tastes fantastic. I think it's because of the spice combination and the slow cooking. Normally my husband doesn't like slow cooker meals but he rated this A - I highly recommend this recipe.
