This recipe was kindly given to us by Olly Rouse Head Chef at Restaurant John Campbell, Cowarth Park. The dish makes a perfect Sunday Lunch and tastes delicious! Enjoy!


100g diced onion
1 clove garlic
400g tin tomatoes
20g sugar
2g rosemary
15g cornflour
20g water
2 lamb shanks


Sweat onions and garlic for 5 minutes

Add tomatoes, cook until thick

Mix cornflour and water, add to sauce whilst boiling, cook for 1 minute

Add rosemary and chill

Roast lamb shanks at 250°C in a Clifton water bath for 15 minutes, then chill

When all cold, peel the skin from the shank, remove the rosemary from the sauce, place in bag with shank and fully vacuum.

Cook for 10 hours at 76°C in a Clifton water bath

Chill, store

Regen at 55ºC, for about 20 minutes. Remove the shank from the bag, pour sauce into pan and boil (if using a non tomato based sauce, the excess fat can be skimmed off at this point). Pour over the meat and serve.
