Ingredients

  • 2 x Our Cow giant lamb shanks
  • 2 x Sticks celery, diced
  • 1 x Large brown onion, diced
  • 2 x Carrots, diced
  • 1 x Tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1x Tablespoon pomegranate molasses (not juice if you can avoid it! If you can't find molasses, just omit it; it gives it a nice tang)
  • 1 x Tablespoon tomato paste
  • 2 x Beef stock cubes, crumbled
  • 1 x Tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 Cup red wine
  • 1 x 400g tin chopped tomatoes 

Method

Step 1
Add the lamb shanks, celery, onion, carrots and minced garlic into a large oven proof dish that's suitable for the stovetop (or use a large saucepan or frypan). Add some olive oil and heat until the shanks get some colour (but don't let the garlic burn - add it in last!).

Step 2
Mix together in a jug or bowl the pomegranate molasses, tomato paste, beef stock cubes, balsamic vinegar and red wine. Pour the mixture over the shanks.

Step 3
Add the chopped tomatoes on top, and put the lid on.

Step 4
Put the whole dish in the oven on 170 degrees for about 4 hours. Bask in the heavenly smell in the house!

Step 5
Cook and add some veggies of your choosing - potato mash is a must with dish, and add some green beans, peas and anything else that takes your fancy!
