Slow-Cooked Lamb Shanks and Tomatoes

A long, gentle simmer slowly breaks down tougher cuts like lamb shank, leaving the meat flavorful, succulent, and tender.

Cook's Notes

Beef shins, a very affordable cut, or oxtails would be good in place of lamb shanks.

    I've made it with short ribs and oxtail.......delicious! I also dredge them with flour and brown them first and reduce cooking time to 2 hours.

    We made this with short ribs instead of lamb shanks (the supermarket was out of shanks) and it came out great. Very easy to make and the sauce is delicious. (When made with the short ribs, it is also very rich.) For leftovers, we shredded the meat and served it over pasta.
