Braised Lamb Shanks
Braised lamb shanks are as easy as it gets! Simply season, sear and serve!
- In a large re-sealable plastic bag combine lamb shanks and flour and toss to thoroughly coat.
- Warm oil in oven-proof heavy-bottom sauce pot or a Dutch oven over medium heat. Sear lamb shanks on all sides until well browned,about 6-8 minutes. Remove shanks and set aside.
- Add onion,carrot,and celery to the pan and cook until soft,about 3-4 minutes. Add garlic and tomato paste and cook 1 minute more.
- Add wine to deglaze pan,scraping any browned bits from pan bottom and cook until wine is reduced by half. Return lamb to pan and cover with stock. Bring to a simmer,add thyme,cover,and transfer to a 325°F (170°C) oven for 2 hours or until shanks are very tender.
- Remove lamb with a slotted spoon and arrange on a serving platter,or in shallow bowls,and spoon braising sauce liberally over meat.
- For a more refined presentation,puree braising liquid and vegetables,pass through a fine mesh sieve,and stir in fresh chopped parsley before spooning over meat.
- By changing the herbs in the recipe you can really change the flavour. Experiment with soft leafy herbs in the warmer months and heartier herbs in the fall and winter.
