{White Wine} Oven-Braised Lamb Shanks

Lamb shanks can often be a very heavy dish, usually cooked in a rich red wine sauce.

I love pairing lamb dishes with lemon, just to cut through that richness and this dish does just that.
The white wine, lemon juice and chicken stock creates a lighter sauce and adds a bit of zing to a classic dish.

Don’t get me wrong – I love lamb shanks in a red wine sauce,but sometimes you just feel like something different, plus this ‘lighter’ version is just as ‘at home’ in summer as it is in winter.

A 'lighter', more zesty lamb shank dish takes comfort food to another level. Braised in the oven with white wine, lemon juice & chicken stock to deliver juicy, fall-off-the-bone meat. Not only for winter - this dish can be enjoyed on warmer summer days, paired with leafy greens.

Keep it simple by pairing it with a fresh herb salad, or enjoy it with pumpkin mash.

I like to make more than enough when I cook dishes like this – any slow-cooked meat – as it makes for great and versatile leftovers.

You can ‘recycle’ it into some fab lunch box dishes or salad jars.

Or – knock your dinner guests’ socks off with this treat!

Enjoy. X
