BRAISED LAMB SHANKS
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
- Place the onions in a layer in the bottom of a Dutch oven or medium roasting pan with a lid. Arrange the lamb shanks on top of the onions.

Pour the tomatoes over everything, then season with salt, pepper and basil.
- Cover and place in the preheated oven. Cook for 3 hours. Use juices from the pan to make a nice flavorful gravy.

LAMB SHANKS WITH MUSHROOM BOLOGNESE
- Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.
- Heat 3 tablespoons of the olive oil in a large deep, ovenproof pot over medium heat until hot. Season the shanks with salt and pepper. Brown on all sides, about 10 minutes, and remove to a plate.
- Raise the heat to medium-high, add the mushrooms, and do not move them until they begin to brown (about 1 minute). Season with salt and pepper. Saute until brown all over, about 5 minutes. Remove to another plate and reserve for final assembly.
- Reduce the heat to medium; add the remaining 3 tablespoons olive oil to the pot. Add the garlic and saute briefly until light brown. Add the onion, carrot and celery. Season with salt and pepper, and saute for another 10 minutes. Add the wine and bay leaf. Bring to a boil over high heat and cook until reduced by half. Add the stock and tomatoes and bring to a boil again. Add fresh oregano. Season with salt and pepper.
- Return the meat to the pot, cover, and place in the oven to braise until fork tender. Test at 2 hours, but the shanks may take as long as 4 hours. Allow the meat to cool in the liquid to room temperature. Remove from the braising liquid and reserve separately. Skim off and discard the fat from the braising liquid. (The recipe may be made to this point a day ahead, covered, and refrigerated).
- Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook until al dente, about 12 minutes, then drain.
- Pour the defatted braising liquids into a saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for 10 minutes. Add the basil and return the shanks to the sauce and simmer gently, just until heated. Remove and keep warm. Add the mushrooms and pasta to the sauce and heat gently until warmed through.

- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Heat the olive oil in a large, deep Dutch oven with a tight-fitting lid over moderate heat until hot but not smoking. Season the lamb shanks with salt and pepper and cook, in batches if necessary, turning with tongs, until well browned, about 10 minutes each batch. Remove the lamb shanks with tongs to a plate and set aside.
- Stir the onions, carrots, rosemary, bay leaves, and garlic into the dutch oven and cook, stirring, until the onions are very soft, about 5 minutes. Add 2 1/2 cups of the wine and deglaze the pan. Bring the mixture to a boil, reduce the heat, and simmer for 5 minutes. Taste for seasoning.
- Return the lamb shanks to the pot and braise the mixture, tightly covered, in the oven for 1 hour. Uncover and braise for 2 more hours, turning the shanks every 30 minutes. Stir in the turnips and the remaining 1/2 cup of the wine, and continue to braise, in the oven for 30 minutes. Discard the bay leaves. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
- While the lamb shanks are braising, make the gremolata: chop together the rosemary, orange zest, and garlic. Place each lamb shank on a serving plate, top with the vegetables, sprinkle with gremolata and serve immediately.
BRAISED LAMB SHANKS WITH GUINNESS & BARLEY

- Add beer and stir to loosen sediment on the bottom of dish. Stir in tomatoes, stock and bring to the boil. Add barley, stir well. Return shanks to the dish.
- Transfer casserole to the oven. Cook for about 2 hours, add more water if needed. Spoon onto deep plates to serve and sprinkle with parsley.
BRAISED LAMB SHANKS WITH GARLIC AND VERMOUTH
The inspiration for this recipe comes from Richard Olney's Simple French Food, where the shanks and garlic are cooked with nothing more than a bit of water. This one has dry white vermouth and a few bay leaves to give the braising liquid an herbaceous flavor that permeates the meat and intensifies the dish. Lamb has a lot of fat, so be sure to take the time to thoroughly skim the sauce before serving. Better yet, braise the shanks a day or two before you plan to serve them (see Make-Ahead Tips, below).

- Tip: After the long braise, the garlic cloves are tender enough to push through a sieve, creating a flavorful purée that thickens the pan sauce. Don't forget to scrape the pulp clinging to the bottom of the strainer.
- Vya and Noilly Pratt are preferred brands of vermouth.
- Position a rack in the lower third of the oven and heat the oven to 325°F If necessary, trim any excess fat from the lamb shanks, but don't trim away the thin membrane that holds the meat to the bone. Season the shanks all over with salt and pepper.
- Heat the oil over medium heat in a large Dutch oven or other heavy braising pot large enough to accommodate the lamb shanks in a snug single layer. When the oil is shimmering, add half the shanks and brown them on all sides, 12 to 15 minute total. Set the browned shanks on a platter. Repeat with the remaining shanks. When all the shanks are browned, pour off and discard the fat from the pan.
- Set the pan over medium-high heat and add the vermouth. As it boils, stir with a wooden spoon to dissolve any drippings. Return the shanks to the pan, arranging them as best you can so they fit snugly. Tuck the bay leaves in between the shanks and scatter the garlic over them. Cover and braise in the oven, turning the shanks every 45 min., until fork-tender, 1-1/2 to 2 hours.
- Transfer the shanks to a platter and cover with foil to keep warm. Tilt the braising pot to pool the juices at one end and skim off and discard any surface fat. Pour what remains in the pot into a medium-mesh sieve set over a bowl. Discard the bay leaves. With a rubber spatula, scrape over and press down on the garlic cloves so the pulp goes through but not the skins; be sure to scrape the pulp clinging to the bottom of the strainer into the sauce. Whisk in the lemon juice. Taste and add salt, pepper, and more lemon juice if needed. To serve, pour the sauce over the shanks and shower them with the chopped herbs and a little freshly ground pepper.
- Make Ahead Tips.
- The dish can be made up to three days ahead. After braising, transfer the shanks to a baking dish. Strain and season the sauce as directed in the recipe. Pour a little strained sauce over the shanks to moisten them. Refrigerate the shanks and the sauce separately, both tightly covered. Before serving, reheat the chilled sauce, pour it over the shanks in the baking dish, cover the dish with foil, and warm in a 325ºF oven for about 30 minute Finish with the herbs and black pepper, and serve.
- Serving Suggestions.
- Fill out the meal with a potato gratin and a refreshing heap of green beans.

- Heat oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6. Pour the oil in a casserole dish or roasting tray large enough to fit all the shanks. With the pan set over a high heat on the hob, spend a good 10 mins browning the lamb all over.
- Remove the lamb, add the onion and carrot and cook for 10 mins until starting to brown. Stir in the herbs and garlic and cook for a few mins more. Stir in the flour and tomato purée, season well then pour over the wine and stock.
- Return the lamb shanks to the pan. Bring to a simmer, cover with a lid or tightly with foil and cook in the oven, undisturbed, for 1½-2 hrs until lamb is tender. Remove the lamb from the sauce and set aside.
- Put pan back on the hob and bubble the sauce down for about 15 mins until rich and glossy. Pass through a sieve into a jug. The lamb and sauce can be stored in the fridge for two days or frozen for one month. To serve, reheat the lamb in the sauce, adding a splash of water if the sauce is too thick.

- Add the garlic and sauté briefly until light brown.
- Add the onion, carrot, and celery, season with salt and pepper, and sauté until light brown, about 8 minutes.
- Add the wine and bay leaf, bring to a boil over high heat, and cook until reduced by half.
- Add the stock and tomatoes and bring to a boil again.
- Season with salt and pepper.
- Return the meat to the pot, cover, and place in the oven to braise until fork tender.
- Test at 2 hours, but the shanks may take as long as 4 hours.
- Let the meat cool in the liquid to room temperature.
- Remove from the braising liquid and reserve separately.
- Skim off and discard the fat from the braising liquids.
- (The recipe may be made to this point a day ahead, covered, and refrigerated. See Chef's Note.) Bring a large pot of water to a boil.
- Add salt and the pasta and cook until al dente, about 12 minutes.
- Meanwhile, pour the defatted braising liquids into a saucepan and bring to a boil over high heat.
- Reduce the heat and simmer for about 10 minutes, skimming the surface all the while.
- Add the basil and oregano.
- Return the shanks to the sauce and simmer gently just until heated through, then remove and keep warm.
- Add the mushrooms and pasta to the sauce and heat gently until warm through.
- Pour onto a large, deep platter or divide among plates and top with the shanks.
- Serve immediately.
- Variation: If you wish to serve the meat off the bone (which turns this into a pasta dish rather than meat on a bed of pasta), tear the meat into big chunks and return it to the sauce with the mushrooms.
- Cook just until reheated.
- Add the pasta, stir, and heat through.
- Taste for seasoning and serve immediately.
- Chef's Note: It is acceptable and even preferable to do this dish a day ahead.
- It is much easier to defat the braising liquid after it has been refrigerated.
- The meat can even cook while you sleep.
- For example, from midnight to 6:00 a.
- at 250°F.
- You can also cook the whole dish in a covered pot on the stove-top.
- There is a caramelization of flavors in oven braising that stove-top cooking does not replicate.
- If the shanks are cracked cut through the bone in the middle they will cook through to tenderness more rapidly, closer to 2 hours than 4 hours.
