Alton Evening Telegraph Wednesday, Sept. 13, 1972 Lamb shanks star in this Greek dish In these days of high food prices, braising relatively inexpensive cuts of meat is one good way to cut the supermarket tab. A tremendous range of innovation opens up when you break out of the broil - barbecue • pan fry habit. Braising allows all kinds of subtle seasonings to permeate the meat. And, an economical cut such as l?mb shanks is even better when baked after braising. The result is crisp outside texture while still maintaining the marvelous flavor and tenderness only braising can give. Frozen or packaged forms of potatoes offer another great way to economize. Unlike many other convenience foods, these work- saving products do not cost any more than the fresh product. And, during the season when fresh Idaho potatoes are hard to find, you can be sure of the same fine quality and flavor if you look for frozen and instant products made from potatoes. Greek Lamb Shanks with Potato Bundles is a meal that belies its economical intent. This recipe is sure to be an often-requested family favorite. During the potato season (October through May), try this dish with fresh potatoes halved or quartered Just add them to the lamb shanks before putting in the oven. The unique mealy texture of potatoes absorbs the delicious flavor of this dish.
