Diva Tasting: Braised Lamb Shanks…

Braised Lamb Shanks

6 lamb shanks

kosher salt and pepper to taste

2 tablespoons olive oil

3 large carrots, cut into 1/4 inch rounds

2 onions, chopped

10 cloves garlic, minced

1  bottle red wine

1 (28 ounce) can whole peeled tomatoes with juice

1 (10.5 ounce) can condensed chicken broth

1 (10.5 ounce) can beef broth

5 teaspoons chopped fresh rosemary

2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme


Season lamb shanks with salt and pepper. Heat oil in a large, heavy pot or Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Working in batches, cook shanks until brown on all sides, about 8 minutes. Transfer shanks to a plate; set aside. Add carrots, onions, and garlic to the pot and sauté over medium heat until golden brown, about 10 minutes. Stir in wine, tomatoes, chicken broth, beef broth, rosemary, and thyme. Return shanks to the 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. Remove the lid and simmer to allow flavors to concentrate, about 20 minutes. Transfer shanks to a platter; cover with foil to keep warm. Continue boiling sauce until thickened, about 15 minutes. Spoon sauce over shanks before serving. 6 Servings.
