Instruction

178 Minutes
  • Step1

    10 Min
    Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C). Wash and pat dry lamb shanks with paper towel. Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a heavy based pot over medium-high heat. Sear two shanks in the hot oil until browned on all sides. Repeat with remaining shanks and oil. Transfer to a plate, tent with foil to keep warm, set aside.
  • Step2

    6 Min
    Sauté the carrots and diced onions, then add garlic and cook for 1 minute. Season with 1/2 MAGGI seasoning and 1/2 teaspoon ground pepper. Sprinkle with flour, toss well and cook for 4-5 minutes to brown the flour. Return the shanks back into the pot.
  • Step3

    4 Min
    Add stock, puree tomato, MAGGI d3d33d3 tablet and herbs. Bring to a simmer on the stove.
  • Step4

    155 Min
    Cover, transfer to lower part of the oven and cook for 2 1/2 hours, or until the meat is tender (adjust the heat so that the liquid simmers very slowly). Gently transfer the shanks onto a plate; tent to keep warm. Take out the bay leaves from the sauce and place pot onto stove. Simmer sauce over medium heat until thickened to your desired consistency.
  • Step5

    3 Min
    You should be left with about some sauce thick enough to lightly coat the back of a spoon. Taste for seasoning and adjust pepper, if desired. Add the shanks back into the pot of sauce. Garnish with parsley and serve with mashed potatoes, rice or pasta.
