Moroccan Inspired Lamb Shanks


I’ve never been to Morocco, so have not experienced the authentic Morocan lamb shanks yet. This recipe came from different recipe and resources and I recreate it to my style.  It’s easy to make, basically the effort is like making your Sunday roast.  Love the tenderness of the lamb combined with the veggies and chickpeas.

Finding on Kikkoman & Yamasa (Jpn) Soy Sauces Contain Alcohol


If you’ve read my last year posting regarding Kikkoman and Yamasa Japanese Soy Sauces Contain Alcohol. Please read our further finding on Kikkoman.

  • As stated in Kikkoman website (quoted on the initial posting below) that Kikkoman Soy Sauces contain greater than 2% alcohol by volume.
  • Our finding by going to various shops that sells Kikkoman in Cape Town (pics above):

Kikkoman Less Salt Soy Sauce contains 6,5% alcohol v/v.

Kikkoman Soy Sauce (‘normal’ one) contains 3,2 % alcohol v/v

  • What Kikkoman official website means by greater than 2 % can be as high as 6,5% v/v (volume by volume).
  • As comparison, beer generally contains 5% of alcohol, while some beer can be as lower as 2-3% and as high as 7% (rarely).
  • So the alcohol contains in Kikkoman is more or less the same as beer.
