It is the month of LOVE, and this recipe is something to spoil your other half.

The Ingredients:

  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 lamb shanks
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 large carrot, chopped
  • 2 potatoes, peeled and chopped
  • 1 green bell pepper, sliced
  • few sprigs fresh rosemary
  • 3 fresh bay leaf
  • 4 garlic cloves, peeled and halved
  • 1 tbsp plain flour
  • 1 tbsp tomato purée
  • 250ml red wine
  • 350ml lamb or chicken stock (or 4 bouillon cubes dissolved in 350ml hot water) 🙂
  • Salt & pepper

Method of preparation:

  1. `Preheat the the oven to 180°C.
  2. Using a large casserole pan, heat the oil and start browning the lamb shanks all over, this may take 10-12 minutes.
  3. Take out the lamb and set aside.  Using the same casserole pan, add the onion, potatoes and carrots and cook for 10 minutes.
  4. Add the herbs and garlic and cook for a few more minutes.
  5. Stir in the flour and tomato purée, season well with salt and freshly ground black pepper then pour over the wine and stock.
  6. Return the lamb shanks to the pan and also add the green bell pepper. Bring to a simmer, cover  the casserole pan with a lid.
  7. Put the casserole into the preheated oven and cook for 2 hours or until the lamb is tender.

Serve with steamed vegetables or as I prefer, with saffron rice or freshly boiled rice.
