Lamb Shanks:The shanks are the lower section of the animal's leg, and they're extremely tough and full of connective tissue. (Note also that lamb has a foreshank and a hindshank, which come from the foresaddle and hindsaddle, respectively.) The lamb shank is the source of a particularly succulent dish, braised lamb shanks. Lamb shanks can also be braised in a crockpot.
