This easy sandwich recipe, inspired by the classic pulled pork dish, is packed with flavorful lamb shank meat and is perfect for lunch or dinner.

  • Prep: 25 mins
  • Cook: 2 hrs
  • Yields: 6 Servings


2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil

4 American Lamb shanks

dash Salt and pepper, to taste

2 yellow onions, sliced into1/2-inch-thick wedges

4 cups fat-free chicken broth

2 tsp dried oregano leaves, crushed

¾ cup prepared barbecue sauce

6 crusty rolls, for serving


1Preheat the oven to 375ºF. In a large skillet, heat the oil over high heat. Pat the shanks dry with a paper towel and season with salt and pepper. Brown the shanks in the oil on all sides.

2Place the shanks in a roasting pan. Add the onion, chicken broth, and oregano. Roast for 2 hours, turning the shanks every 30 minutes.

3When the meat is done, remove it from the broth and let it cool. Strain the broth, reserving the onions. Reserve 1/4 cup of broth. Refrigerate or freeze the remaining broth for use in soups or stews.

4Remove the meat from the bones and shred it, removing any fat. In a large saucepan, combine the pulled lamb, barbecue sauce, and 2 tablespoons to 1/4 cup reserved broth if needed. Cook on low, stirring to combine the sauce and lamb.

5Split the rolls and spoon the meat into each roll.
