Lamb shank Potjie Recipe – Method

Pack one layer of briquettes onto the coal grid inside your PotjieKing™ and place a couple fire lighters in the bottom section and get that going. Once the briquettes have stopped smoking, place your Potjie pot onto the PotjieKing™ to heat up.

  • Season the shanks lightly with salt and pepper and brown a few at a time in a heated pot until browned all over.
  • Remove the shanks and sauté the onion and garlic in a little olive oil until soft.
  • Add the vinegar and stir through.
  • Now you can add all the spices and stir-fry lightly.
  • Add the tomatoes and mix through.
  • Return the shanks to the pot, lower the heat, add the stock and simmer until the shanks are getting nice and tender. Approximately 2 – 3 hours.
  • Add the carrots and baby potatoes.
  • Simmer until the potatoes are almost soft and add the rest of the vegetables and heat until they’re just done but still firm, if thats how you like it.
  • Season with salt and pepper to taste and another sprinkle of balsamic vinegar if you like.
  • Serve with brown rice or mashed potato


Eat, drink and be merry.
