10-Hour Braised Lamb Recipe

Serve this savory braised lamb recipe -- adapted from "The Blackberry Farm Cookbook", by chef Sam Beall -- for your next special dinner.

  • servings: 4

Ingredients

  • 2 large carrots, peeled and chopped
  • 1 large white onion, chopped
  • 2 ribs celery, chopped
  • 1 lamb neck, about 1 1/2 pounds or 1 1/2 pounds lamb shank
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons coarse salt
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 cups Pinot Noir or other light red wine
  • 3 cups Vegetable Stock, or low-sodium, store-bought vegetable broth, heated

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Preheat oven to 250 degrees.

  2. Step 2

    Place carrots, onion, and celery in an even layer in a roasting pan. Season lamb with 2 teaspoons salt and pepper. Set lamb on top of vegetables. Transfer to oven and cook for 6 hours.

  3. Step 3

    After about 5 1/2 hours of cooking, place Pinot Noir in a medium saucepan and simmer over medium-high heat until reduced to 1 1/2 cups.

  4. Step 4

    Remove roasting pan from oven and add wine to pan, along with stock and remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt. Cover roasting pan with parchment paper-lined foil and return to oven. Continue cooking until meat is almost falling off the bone, about 4 hours more.

  5. Step 5

    Remove lamb from braising liquid and use a fork to scrape meat away from bones. Divide meat among 4 plates and serve immediately.

    Love this on a cold day it warms and scents the house so well. I added rosemary sprigs and lots more root vegetables (fennel, parsnips, acorn squash, purple potato, brussells sprouts) to it and once even tossed in some par boiled fava beans near the end. Its almost like a good new spin on cholent. The plus is that I end up with lots of roasted vege I can turn in to another couple of meals (or soup) for the next few days. Thank you Martha for putting this on my radar.
