  1. Hey Corrie, love your recipes. Can I just check.. high pressure for 30mins, is this a typo by any chance? I cooked my lamb steaks in the Pressure Cooker (I’m in Australia, so Lamb Steaks are 2cm thick by 10cm wide) put on for 2 mins and they were overdone. Or are you referring to Lamb Shanks perhaps? Thank you for your help. Ange

    1. Hi Ange, thanks! It depends on how you like them cooked. If you like a medium-rare lamb, then yes, just a couple of minutes. This recipe gets the lamb super tender and falling apart like a pot roast.
