Lamb shank casserole

Serves: 6  |  Preparation Time: 20mins  |  Cooking Time: 3hrs


  • 6 Farm88 lamb shanks
  • 2 carrots finely diced
  • 2 celery stalks finely diced
  • 1½ cups red wine

  1. Preheat oven to 160°C fan forced or 180°C.
  2. Brown the lamb shanks in half the olive oil in a large oven and stovetop safe dish (that has a lid for use later). Remove shanks and set aside.

  4. Add the red wine, tomatoes, tomato paste and chicken stock liquid to the pan and stir well.
  5. Add herbs and return the lamb shanks back to the dish, ensuring most of the lamb is submerged.
  6. Bring to a simmer, cover with the lid, and put it in the oven for 2 hours.
  7. Remove the lid from the shanks and continue cooking for another 30 minutes.
  8. Serve with mashed potato or cauliflower purée.
