    1. In a bowl mix all the seasoning listed in the ingredients. Season each lamb shank on both sides. In a dutch oven ( if you don't have a dutch oven you might have to cook on skillet and than transfer to a deep baking pan such as lasagna pan) Saute' Lamb shanks with a little bit of oil just until browned on each side.
    2. mix water with couple table spoons of beef base. Pour pomegranate juice over the lamb shank. Also pour in water mixed with beef base. Add pealed pearl onions.
    3. If there is any of the mixed seasoning left add to the pot. Also add one tea spoon of salt. The liquid should be covering most of the shank. Cover with a oven proof lid or foil.

I cooked two cups of couscous, three cups of water, two table spoons of butter and seasoned it with salt in an instant part on rice selection.

    My story, I met the love of my life when I was 16 and two years later we were married. When we first got married I was not much of a cook, I would buy so many cook books and try recipes over and over again until it would turn out. I never gave up and my husband can tell you I had my share of bad cooking. The more I practiced the better I got. Now we are going on 10 years of happily married. I love to cook and create my own recipe also became a baker, I have also taken interest in doing home design and decor. In my blog I would love to share with you the recipes I create, recipes I find and love to share also tips for home decor and ideas.
