Easy slow braised Lamb Shanks. i came up with this after looking a few different recipes. i like things easy, and this is.
4 Lamb Shanks
1/2 bottle Red Wine
1/2 Litre Beef Stock
2 Onions - roughly chopped
2 carrots - roughly chopped
6 cloves garlic - peeled
2 Rosemary spriggs
2 Thyme Spriggs
1/2 tsp - tomatoe puree
1/2 tsp - Redcurrant jelly
salf and pepper
Pack of stir fried Veg
2 tsp bacon lardons
1 garlic clove - finely chopped
Pre heat oven to 200 degrees (normal oven)
Season the lamb shanks with salt and pepper and brown all over in a frying pan, transfer to a big lidded casserole pot.
Add everything else to the pot and place in oven. After 30 mins, reduce heat to 160 and leave for 31/2 to 4 hours.
Carfeully remove lamb shanks from pot (the meat will be falling off the bone), set aside and keep warm.
Strain remaining juices from the pot into a saucepan and heat until reduced slightly. You should end up with a nice slightly orange coloured sauce.
Heat some oil in a wok, add the bacon and garlic and fry until slightly coloured, add the veg, and fry for a few more mins
arrange the stir fried veg on a plate, top with a Lamb Shank, spoon over the sauce..
