Juicy delicious lamb shanks are slow cooked to perfection with vegetables, with red wine, chicken broth, and herbs.

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil or canola oil
  • 4 lamb shanks
  • salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1 large sweet onion, sliced
  • 2 medium carrots, diced
  • 2 celery ribs, diced
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 3 cups dry red wine, such as Cabernet Sauvignon or similar
  • 2 cups chicken stock
  • 1 sprig rosemary
  • 2 to 3 sprigs

Steps to Make It

  1. Heat oil in a large skillet or saute pan. Add the lamb shanks, sprinkle with salt and pepper, and brown on all sides, about 6 to 8 minutes total.

  2. Transfer the lamb to a slow cooker insert. Add onion, carrots, and celery to the skillet and cook, stirring, until onion is just tender.

  3. Add the vegetable mixture to the slow cooker, along with the garlic, wine, and chicken stock. Add the herb sprigs, cover, and cook on HIGH for 1 hour.

  4. Turn heat to low and cook for about 7 to 9 hours longer, or until lamb shanks are very tender. Or, cook on high for about 5 to 6 hours.
