Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp Olive oil
  • 4 Lamb shanks, approx. 225g each
  • 16 Small shallots, peeled
  • 4 Carrots, peeled and cut into chunks
  • 1 Celery stick, chopped
  • 2 Garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 can chopped tomatoes, 400g
  • 300ml Red wine
  • 1 tbsp Caster Sugar
  • 2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 Bay leaves
  • 2 sprigs fresh Rosemary

Method

  1. Heat the oil in a large frying pan on the hotplate, and fry off the lamb shanks until they are brown on all sides.
  2. Remove with a slotted spoon and place in a cast-iron casserole dish.
  3. Gently fry the shallots, carrots, celery and garlic and place in the casserole dish, over the lamb.
  4. Pour the tomatoes and wine into the frying pan, add the sugar, Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper and bring to the boil, stirring to de-glaze the pan. Pour over the lamb and vegetables. Tuck in the bay leaves and rosemary.
  5. On the hotplate, bring the contents of the casserole to the boil.
  6. Main oven 120'C (250'F), Gas Mark 1 or idling lower oven in slow cooking mode.
  7. Transfer the dish to the oven and cook for 2.5-3 hours or until the meat is falling from the bone.
  8. When the lamb has cooked, remove it from the casserole along with the vegetables and keep them warm in the lower oven.
  9. Turn up the cooker control and reduce the cooking liquid until it becomes a thick sauce, skim off any liquid fat.
  10. Return the lamb and vegetables to the sauce, heat through and serve with mashed potatoes and spinach.
