45 mins (prep 15, cooking 30)

Lamb shanks are a great meat for novice pressure cookers. The lamb is a great cut of meat with a rich flavor. With traditional cooking, you are looking at a good 2 hours, with the Pressure Cooker just 30 minutes!! The recipe comes from "The New Pressure Cooker Cookbook by Pat Dailey, a great book. Honestly, I didn't taste the garlic that much, not sure whether to add more, or give the garlic cloves a chop or two. I did use port, but I imagine you could substitute a heavy red wine. I served with orzo pasta mixed with green peas. This recipe is for 2, but it would be easy to make for 4 or 6 depending on the size of your PC, just brown them in in a large frying/sauté pan. Enjoy!
