This is simply gorgeous because it's so comforting! The lamb shanks are slow cooked in a generous amount of red wine. Preparation is easy, too, it goes from stovetop to oven. This is best served with the pan juices poured over a creamy mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, pumpkin, risotto, or even soft polenta.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C).
  2. Heat the olive oil in a heavy, metal roasting pan on the stove over medium-high heat. Toss shanks with flour to coat well; then shake off excess. Sear the shanks in hot oil until well browned on all sides, then remove from pan and set aside.
  3. Add the leek, celery, carrot, onion, and garlic to the roasting pan. Cook until softened and lightly browned, stirring constantly; about 5 minutes. Season with the bay leaf, peppercorns, thyme and rosemary sprigs. Pour in the red wine and chicken stock, increase heat to high, and bring to a simmer. Season to taste with sea salt, and place the lamb shanks on top of the vegetables.
  4. Cover the roasting pan tightly with heavy aluminum foil, and place into the preheated oven. Bake gently until the meat is tender and falls off of the bone, 2 1/2 to 3 hours. Remove the bay leaf and herb stems before serving shanks with vegetables and sauce.

I enjoyed this recipes as it was very simple and healthy. I used a crockpot instead of my oven and I ended up with very tender vegetables and lamb. I would add a little more salt, but otherwise it was a great meal.

Heavenly is the right word for it. I was a little conserned at first about all the garlic, but when it was cooked the flavor was so good that i wouldn't change a thing. Thank you very much this will very quickly be come a favorite in our house.

Made it last year with 12 lamb shanks for a bunch of friends and they loved it so much! Trying this delicious dish again tonight with extra splash of red wine(personal preference!)
