Cook Time 1 hour


  • 1 kg Lamb Knuckles
  • 1 Brown Onion (chopped finely)
  • 1 can All Gold Peeled And Diced Tomatoes Garlic, Basil And Origanum
  • 6 Black Peppercorns
  • 1 Bay Leaf
  • Brown Vinegar
  • Sweet Chili Sauce
  • 1 tsp White Sugar
  • 2 Potatoes
  • Pink Salt And Pepper (to taste)


  • Clean shanks. Do not use water.
  • Place knuckles in a casserole with peppercorn, splash of vinegar, salt and pepper. Add a bit of water and roast until it is brown and almost done. Add more water if necessary. It makes it nice and brown.
  • When almost done, remove and place on the side.
  • In the same casserole, fry the onion until it is soft and translucent (not brown). Add the tomatoes, bay leaf, nutmeg and let it cook for 10 minutes.
  • Add meat back into the casserole and cover the meat with the tomato mixture. Cook for 30 minutes or longer. The tomatoes must be absorbed by the meat.
  • Cut the potatoes into quarters and cook with the tomato mixture.
  • When potatoes are cooked, add sweet chili sauce and sugar. Add more water if the dish is to dry.
  • Prepare some corn flour and mix through the sauce. The corn flour mixture will bind the sauce.
  • Add more water again if the sauce is to dry. The mixture must have a saucy texture.
  • Serve with your choice of rice.
