Braised Lamb Shanks are served with a delicious sauce.

Ingredients

  • 4 lamb shanks, approximately 12 ounces each
  • 1 tablespoon garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 cups carrots, finely diced
  • 1 1/2 cups red wine
  • 1 lemon, cut in half
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 cup onion, finely diced
  • 1 cup celery, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 tablespoon salt

Directions

  1. Heat olive oil in a heavy roasting pan or Dutch oven large enough to hold shanks in one layer. Add shanks and cook 10 minutes on each side. Pour off all but 2 tablespoons fat.
  2. Add onions, carrots and celery and cook for 5 minutes. Add garlic, wine, lemon halves, salt and pepper. Bake covered at 325 degrees F until tender, about 1 1/2 hours. Turn shanks every 30 minutes.
  3. Check pan liquids. If dry add another cup water.
  4. When lamb is tender, remove shanks from sauce. Strain sauce through a sieve and discard vegetables. Skim and discard fat from surface of braising liquid.
  5. Arrange shanks on a platter and serve braising liquid on the side.
