Traditionally, cooking techniques like grilling or sauteing are used to cook tender cuts of lamb, like shank portion roast. This allows shank portion roast to be cooked to the full range of temperatures, from rare to well done. Sous vide's primary benefit for this type of cut is that it can produce edge-to-edge consistency of doneness. If you like your shank portion roast medium, you don't need to have a range of doneness from medium well at the edges to medium in the center.
Our advice with Shank Portion Roast is to cook it at a temperature you like and not to exceed a couple of hours (depending on the thickness of the cut). The goal is to bring the lamb up to the temperature you want.
