The Only Lamb Shanks Recipe that Matters
Chef Billy Parisi
Sink your teeth into this incredibly delicious, braised lamb shanks recipe that is slow-cooked in an amazingly flavored broth. I served these tasty shanks up with some of my creamy risotto and it is outstanding.
Lamb shanks are cut from the leg of the lamb and tend to be a tougher cut of meat. It is best slow-cooked for longer periods of time to help break down the meat. It will become melt in your mouth good as this is one of my all-time favorite dishes.
You can purchase lamb shanks from any butcher shop and most grocery stores will carry them as well. They cost roughly 10-12 per pound while 1 lamb shank weighs about 12 ounces, with about 3-4 of those ounces being the bone. One shank will easily and fully feed 1 person.
Ingredients for this recipe:
• 4 lamb shanks
• 2 tablespoons olive oil
• 1 peeled and medium diced yellow onion
• 2 peeled and medium diced carrots
• 2 medium diced ribs of celery
• 1 peeled and medium diced turnip
• 1 peeled and medium diced parsnip
• 4-5 garlic cloves
• 12-15 fresh thyme sprigs
• 2 fresh rosemary sprigs
• 1 small bunch of parsley
• 2 cups of red wine
• 3 tablespoons tomato paste
• 48 ounces beef stock
• Sea salt and fresh cracked pepper
