Whenever Scott and I are trying to figure out a healthy dinner date, I always suggest Greek food.

Not only is the food amazing, but it’s so easy to eat a nutritious meal at Greek restaurants. Beyond lamb stew, they are just the bomb.

Taramosalata dip (aka fish egg dip) with cucumbers? Amazing.

Mushrooms stuffed with spinach and feta? I die.

A simple Greek salad with gyro meat on top? The freaking best salad, anywhere, ever.

So I try to cook a lot of Greek food. This week I had a pound of lamb shanks from the farm and decided to throw a stew into the crockpot before I left for work. It turned out so well, and my entire apartment smelled like a delicious Greek joint.

Ingredients
  

  • 1 lb lamb shanks
  • 1 onion diced
  • 3 carrots chopped
  • 1 BPA-free can of tomatoes
  • 1 tbsp dill
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp oregano
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1 bacon strip chopped into bits
  • 4 garlic cloves minced

Instructions
 

  • Combine the shanks, tomatoes, onion, carrots, spices, and broth in a crockpot on low. Leave for about 8 hours. At this point, I came home and I wanted the stew to be thicker, you can leave it as is if you like (just make sure to add the bacon, butter, and garlic and cook for a bit longer).
  • To make a thicker stew, remove the shanks and set aside. On the stove top, add the rest of the juices and veggies into a pan. Add the bacon and butter as well. Let it reduce until thickened, then add the garlic. Return the shanks to the pan and shred them a bit.

Notes

To make a thicker stew, remove the shanks and set aside. On the stove top, add the rest of the juices and veggies into a pan. Add the bacon and butter as well. Let it reduce until thickened, then add the garlic. Return the shanks to the pan and shred them a bit.
