Quick Facts

Servings: 8
Prep Time: 20 min.
Cook Time: 2 hr.
Total: 2 hr. 20 min.
A wonderful dish to set before any king or queen.

Ingredients

  • 1 Tbs olive oil
  • 4 lamb shanks (about 1 lb each), trimmed of visible fat
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 med onion, chopped
  • 2 med carrots, peeled and sliced crosswise into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 2 celery ribs, sliced crosswise into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 2 Tbs tomato paste
  • 1 1/2 Tbs herbs de Provence
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1/4 cup dry red wine
  • 1 1/2 cups low sodium chicken broth
  • 1 can diced tomatoes, with juice
  • 1 can white beans (great northern or cannellini), drained and rinsed

Directions

  • In a large Dutch oven over medium-high heat, add oil. Season lamb with salt and pepper. Add to hot oil and cook, browning each side, about 4 minutes per side (if necessary, cook in batches). Remove shanks to a clean plate and set aside.
  • Add onion, carrots, celery, tomato paste, herbs de Provence, garlic, salt, and pepper; cook until softened, about 5 minutes. Add wine, scraping up any brown bits on the bottom of the pan.
  • Add broth, tomatoes, and beans; bring mixture to a simmer. Nestle browned lamb shanks into broth mixture; cover and cook until meat is tender and easily falls off the bone, about 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 hours, depending on size of shanks.
  • Place shanks in individual shallow bowls or plates. Divide vegetables and sauce among bowls.
  • Serve with a simple green salad (arugula or mixed greens, dressed with lemon juice and extra virgin olive oil) and whole grain, crusty bread.
