Conway's Irish Ale Roasted Lamb Shank

Posted January 25, 2012 By Marissa DeSantis

Conway's Irish Ale is a full-bodied ale packed with toasty flavors and a smooth malt backbone. It pairs well with your favorite St. Patrick's Day staples like corned beef and savory stews, but this month's recipe finds GLBC's "proud and mellow patriarch" contributing to a surprising new dish that's hearty, comforting, and truly original.

Conway's Irish Ale Roasted Lamb Shank


-2 12 oz. bottles of Great Lakes Brewing Company's Conway's Irish Ale
-5 garlic cloves, chopped
-2 shallots, chopped
-4 lamb shanks, pulled
-1 onion, chopped
-1 carrot, chopped
-10 redskin potatoes, chopped
-10 mint leaves
-1 loaf beer or barley bread, 2" sliced


Combine beer, garlic, and shallots to create the marinade. Coat the lamb shanks and allow them to marinate in a covered container overnight (12 hours). Place lamb shanks, onion, carrot, and potatoes in a roasting pan with 1 1/2 cups of the marinade. Cook for 2 1/2 hours covered at 325 degrees. Using a fork, pull lamb off bone after cooling for 10 minutes.

Remove lamb and vegetables and transfer the pan drippings to a sauce pot. To create mint au jus, add mint leaves to the drippings, bring to a boil, and simmer on medium-high heat for 5-10 minutes. Serve lamb shanks, vegetables, and mint au jus over sliced bread. Serves 4.

Conway's Irish Ale is available for a limited time in 6-packs, 12-packs, and on draft throughout GLBC's distribution markets. Stop into the GLBC gift shop or visit our online store to purchase Conway's merchandise, including posters, pint glasses, and the brand new Conway's t-shirt.
