Ingredients

2 tsp olive oil 10 mL
2 lamb shanks 700 g
2 cloves garlic, crushed
2 sprigs fresh thyme 1 g
3 tbsp white wine 45 mL
1 cup chicken broth 250 mL
2 potatoes, peeled and cut into pieces 400 g
2 tbsp lemon juice, freshly squeezed 3/4 lemon
salt [optional]
ground pepper to taste [optional]

Before you start

A large and deep casserole dish with a tight-fitting lid is necessary for this recipe.

Method

  1. Heat the oil in a large deep casserole dish over high heat. Add the lamb shanks, then brown well turning them until coloured on all sides, about 10 min. About halfway through the browning, sprinkle the lamb with salt and pepper then add the garlic and thyme.
  2. When the meat is nicely coloured, deglaze with the wine. Add the broth then bring to a boil. Turn the heat down to 'low' and cover. Cook at a slow simmer until the lamb is quite tender, about 1 1/2 h or a little longer.
  3. Add the potatoes then re-cover. Raise the heat if necessary (the mixture should boil) and continue to cook until the potatoes are just about tender, 30-40min more. If the stew is too thin, raise the heat to 'high' and uncover to boil out some of the liquid.
  4. When the potatoes are tender, adjust the seasoning. Stir in the lemon juice, garnish with a few thyme leaves, then serve.

Remarks

This dish may be made ahead up to step 2 included, then covered and refrigerated for up to 1 day.
