American-Style Lamb Drumsticks

American-Style Lamb DrumsticksRecipe courtesy of the Meat and Livestock Australia.

Recipe Ingredients:

8 to 12 Australian lamb drumsticks (French trimmed lamb shanks)
2 tablespoons light olive oil
1 cup tomato ketchup or barbecue sauce
1/4 cup yellow mustard
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
4 shallots, finely chopped
Freshly ground black pepper

Cooking Directions:

  1. Prepare an indirect fire in kettle barbecue. Leave lid off while heating. As intensity of heat is too severe when first lit, wait for coals to turn white, (about 1 hour) before cooking, or preheat oven to 350°F (175°C).
  2. Marinate lamb drumsticks in remaining ingredients while waiting for barbecue to heat. When ready to cook, remove lamb drumsticks from marinade reserving mixture as baste.
  3. Place lamb drumsticks in heated barbecue or preheated oven. Cover with lid (vent open) and cook for 1 to 1 1/2 hours, basting occasionally. Check lamb by squeezing with tongs - meat should feel very tender.
  4. When cooked to your liking, rest lamb drumsticks covered loosely in foil in a warm place 10 minutes to let juices settle.

Makes 6 servings.
