For the lamb shanks
For the potatoes and Brussels sprouts
Rinse and dry the potatoes and Brussels sprouts. Meanwhile, preheat the oven with baking tin inside to 250 °C.
Marinate the shanks with rapeseed oil and sear in the preheated baking tin.
Peel and quarter the onions, then peel and press the garlic. Roast both ingredients in the baking tin.
Meanwhile, mix the red wine with the tomato purée and 50 ml Kikkoman Soy Sauce, and add the mixture to the lamb shanks. Add the cinnamon sticks, apricots, and bay leaves.
Reduce the liquid and then top this up again using the beef stock. Then cover the baking tin and roast everything for approx. 40 minutes.
In the meantime, peel the potatoes and put them in cold water with 4 pinches of salt. Remove the outer leaves from the Brussels sprouts, cross cut the stalks with a knife, then blanch the Brussels sprouts with 4 pinches of salt in boiling water for approx. 5 minutes.
Toast the hazelnuts in a pan and season with 2 tbsp rapeseed oil and 1 tbsp Kikkoman Soy Sauce.
Mix the potatoes together with the Brussels sprouts, some melted butter, 1 tbsp Kikkoman Soy Sauce/salt and fresh pepper, and then top with the hazelnuts.
The lamb shank should be tender after 40 minutes cooking time. Serve everything together as soon as the lamb is ready.
