Pressure Cooker Lamb Shank Recipe

I always enjoy a good meal of lamb shank and it is one of my favoourite dish whenever I visit western restaurants. I found a nice piece of frozen lamb shank in the hypermarket and bought it without any hesitation.  This lamb shank was to be one of the dish for my family's dinner to be eaten with rice, so I only bought one piece. Anyway, we don't eat that much meat to have one shank each per person. lol!
As I was driving home, my mind was filled with thoughts of the ingredients that I am going to use for this piece of lamb shank. I have limited time to prepare dinner for my family, so I throw all the ingredients in my pressure cooker and cooked them for 25 minutes. I ended up with a very tender lamb shank and the nice aroma of rosemary filled my house when I opened the pressure cooker lid....yum yum!

Lamb Shank, 1 pc
Onions, 1 pc, cut into 4
Garlic, 3 cloves
Celery stalks (optional), 2 stalks, cut into bite size
Carrot, 1 pc, cut into cubes
Red Wine (optional), 3 table spoons
Tomato, 1 pc, cut into 4
Tomato sauce, 3 tablespoons
Rosemary (dried), 1 teaspoon
Thyme, 1/2 teaspoon (dried)
Worchestershire sauce, 1 teaspoon
Salt to taste
Pepper to taste

Put lamb shank in pressure cooker. Pour in water to cover around 3/4 of the shank. Throw in all the ingredients. Close the pressure cooker lid tightly and engage the safety lock. Cook the shank at high heat for 10 minutes then turn heat to low and cook for another 15 minutes. Let the cooker cool down for around 20 minutes and then release the pressure slowly. Serve lamb shank while still hot!

Yummmmm...looks good. Not easy to get lamb shanks here. I guess not much market other than the few cafes and restaurants.

Love your recipe, sometimes I will also add chicken stock too. Maybe I can try some lamb shanks sometime! I usually use beef.
