Traditionally souvlaki is made with meat on skewers and barbecued. I wanted something I could put in the oven and forget about until it was ready so decided to try slow roast shanks instead.

The result was succulent, flavoursome meat that fell off the bone. I will not use skewers and risk having burnt or over cooked souvlaki again.

Serve the lamb, Greek salad and tzatziki in pita bread or on a platter to share.

Souvlaki Lamb Shank With Tzatziki And Greek Salad
Delicious slow roasted shanks

Preparation Time: 10 minutes (plus 8 hours marinating time)
Cooking Time: 3 hours 45 minutes
Serves: 4 - 6

4 lamb shanks
1/2 cup water

For the souvlaki marinade
1 tbsp paprika
2 tsp cumin
2 tsp oregano
4 cloves garlic, crushed (exclude for low FODMAP)
1 tsp cracked pepper
1/8 tsp salt

For the Greek salad
1 iceberg lettuce, cut
1/2 cucumber, cut
1 tomato, cut
1 red capsicum, sliced
1/2 cup kalamata olives
100 g feta cheese, cut into cubes (exclude for lactose free)
1 tbsp parsley, finely cut

For the dressing
1 lemon, juiced
2 - 3 tbsp olive oil
2 - 3 tbsp vinegar
Salt, to taste

For the tzatziki sauce
1/2 cucumber, diced
2 cloves garlic, crushed (exclude for low FODMAP)
1/8 cup olive oil
1 cup yoghurt (lactose free if required)
1 tbsp vinegar
1 tbsp mint, finely cut

To serve
4 - 6 pita breads (more if desired)
4 tbsp olive oil
2 tsp oregano
1 lemon cut into slices

Combine the marinade ingredients in a dish. Add the lamb shanks, rub to coat, cover and refrigerate for a minimum of 8 hours, overnight for best results.
When ready to bake, preheat the oven to 140 degrees. Bring the lamb shanks to room temperature.
Sear the lamb shanks in a oven proof dish or frypan on high, until all sides are brown.
Add 1/2 cup of water to the dish with the marinade, stir to combine any leftover marinade and pour into the frying pan with the lamb shanks. Cover and bake for 3 hours.
