It Isn’t a Recipe You’re Doing Every Day. I Promise it is Mouth Watering!

I really love lamb, unfortunately I don’t cook it often enough and when it is flavored with Saffron it becomes a dream. Saffron is an exquisite spice derived from the crocus flower.

Lamb is much better than sheep in my opinion, it doesn’t have the “strong” smell of the sheep. Today we chose lamb shank, you can use cheaper pieces of lamb, but let’s get something special.
