How to Make Roast Spring Lamb with Artichokes

  • Remove the outer leaves from the artichokes so that only the tender inner leaves remain.
  • Bring a pot of water to boil, add the trimmed artichokes and simmer for 15 minutes.
  • Remove artichokes, let it cool, then slice into half in order to scoop out the chokes with a small spoon. Reserve hearts.
  • Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Heat the olive oil in a large casserole, add the lamb shanks and saute until browned on all sides, for about 15 minutes.
  • Transfer lamb shanks to a shallow roasting pan and scatter the onions and garlic over it.
  • Pour in the meat stock, and roast for 30 minutes.
  • Place a small saucepan on low heat, add the ham and saute until lightly browned, 7 to 10 minutes.
  • Add the artichokes to the lamb, baste the meat and artichokes with the juices, and roast for another 10 minutes.
  • Add the ham and roast another 5 minutes, or until lamb is cooked according to your taste.
  • Remove the lamb from the oven, let it rest a few minutes, then serve warm.
