“Lamb shanks that are slowly simmered with fresh rosemary, garlic, tomatoes, and red wine. Great served with polenta, or my family's favorite roasted garlic mashed potatoes, as you need something to soak up the wonderful sauce that is created with these. A fantastic dish for company, as all the prep work is done at the beginning, and then you just have to wait.”

Directions

  1. Sprinkle shanks with salt and pepper. Heat oil in heavy large pot over medium-high heat. Working in batches, cook shanks until brown on all sides, about 8 minutes. Transfer shanks to plate.
  2. Add onions, carrots and garlic to pot and saute until golden brown, about 10 minutes. Stir in wine, tomatoes, chicken broth and beef broth. Season with rosemary and thyme. Return shanks to pot, pressing down to submerge. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium-low. Cover, and simmer until meat is tender, about 2 hours.
  3. Remove cover from pot. Simmer about 20 minutes longer. Transfer shanks to platter, place in a warm oven. Boil juices in pot until thickened, about 15 minutes. Spoon over shanks.

This is one of our favourite recipes. We have been making it for years. I brown the shanks and then place in slow cooker. I cook veg and sauce until boiling and then poured ontop of shanks. I cook on low for 7 hours (or high for 4 hours.) So tender! I then remove shanks and thicken sauce with a water/cornstarch mixture. Yummy!!!!

This recipe is Lambtastic! The first time I made it, used half the amount of lamb and I halved all the other ingredients. It came out perfect. The second time I made this recipe I followed it exactly. I found that I ended up with way too much liquid. So instead of reducing down all that liquid I made a delicious risotto out of the extra liquid. It was easy. I sauteed some garlic in a pan, added the risotto rice to the pan and then continued to add the liquid until the risotto was done. I finished it off with some grated parm. The liquid that remained in the lamb dish was then reduced down to the perfect amount. I love this dish because I always have leftover red wine that I don't know what to do with. This dish is perfect for using up all that red wine that I hate to throw away.

These are delicious. The only change I made was omitting the tomatoes. I wanted to intensify the "meaty" flavor, so I used a very rich beef stock along with the chicken stock. It worked. The sauce was almost like a demi glace.
