    Braised Lamb Shanks

    List of Ingredients

    • 3 pounds lamb shanks, cracked
    • flour
    • 2 tablespoons olive oil
    • 1 onion, coarsely chopped
    • 1 small carrot, peeled and chopped
    • 1 stalk celery, chopped
    • 3 cloves garlic, chopped
    • 1 can (8oz.) tomato sauce
    • 1/2 cup chicken stock
    • 2 bay leaves
    • 2 sprigs rosemary
    • 1 stick cinnamon
    • salt and pepper


    1. Roll lamb shanks in flour; brown over medium heat until well colored all over. Remove from pan and set aside.

      Chop vegetables and garlic together or chop in food processor. Don't over process, it needs some texture. Sauté in oil remaining in pan until tender. Return shanks to pan and add tomato sauce, stock, rosemary, bayleaves and cinnamon. Season with salt and pepper; simmer over low heat for 1 to 1 1/2 hrs until shanks are very tender.

    Final Comments

    Very good served with Saffron Rissoto or Herbed Polenta
