Braised Lamb Shanks with White Beans

Lamb shanks, white beans, tomatoes and red wine are an ideal union for a hearty autumn dinner. You can substitute the same amount of veal shanks for the lamb shanks if you like.

a great and different main dish for guests
December 28, 2010
made this wonderful dish about once a year for guests, always to rave reviews. Somehow lost the recipe for it about five years ago, saw lamb shanks at the butcher and remembered it. It was fabulous, guests loved it. Its presentation is always something to talk about, and its simply a great meal for cold weather. Make a loaf of no-knead crusty bread in a dutch oven, pop the cork on a decent Cote du Rhone, and enjoy a great meal.

Son Raves and Raves about this dish
December 19, 2010
First recipe from W&S I've made. Cooked this last night and my 19 y.o. son (and husband) kept going on about how good it was. I used canned white beans to avoid the soaking time and just added them the last 1/2 hour (had to reduce the sauce a little). Don't leave out the lemon rind. Initally I forgot and served it without the rind, it was still delicious, but with the lemon rind all the flavours are hightened!! Lamb shanks however, are very hard on the pocket book. Might try this with a leg of lamb and cut it up into stew size pcs.

I have been making this recipe for years; it is one of my favorite recipes. I remove the lamb from the shanks before serving, creating a one pot meal...makes it easier to eat and it gets rid of the fat.The lemon zest makes the dish.
