Red Wine Braised Lamb Shanks
This is one of my all-time favorite recipes! If you have the time over the weekend, this recipe for Red Wine Braised Lamb Shanks is sure to impress! It’s relatively easy to put together, it just needs a few hours to slow braise. In the meantime, your house will smell amazing and you will be eagerly awaiting dinner!
If you are a fan of lamb like I am, the shanks are my favorite cut. Searing them first gives them a beautiful crust and is definitely a must. Not trying to rhyme, it just happened! Slow braising them with vegetables, tomato paste, broth & red wine gives a richness to the dish that has tremendous depth of flavor. Serve them with roasted root vegetables or roasted carrots with cumin, cayenne & maple syrup, they make the perfect side dish. You also can’t go wrong serving this dish on top of a mound of creamy mashed potatoes to capture all of the amazing juices as well! I hope you enjoy my recipe for these Red Wine Braised Lamb Shanks as much as I do. It’s the perfect winter comfort food dish!
