Braised Lamb Shanks

Last newsletter we featured a roasted ratatouille recipe that just so happens to be an excellent base for a wonderful braised lamb shank recipe.

Follow the instructions for the roasted ratatouille.

Salt and pepper two large lamb shanks then brown them on all sides in a large dutch oven.

Remove the lamb shanks and add one and half cups of chicken stock and one and half cups of red wine and deglaze the pan. Bring to a boil.

Remove from the heat and add the roasted ratatouille and put the lamb shanks on top.

Put in the oven at 325 for 2 to 4 hours until the meat is falling off the bone. Remove from the oven.

Remove the lamb shanks and cook over high heat to reduce the liquid by half for a wonderful sauce.

Serve with creamy polenta.

This is a simple, yet richly flavorful and succulent recipe for braised lamb shanks. Enjoy!
