Ring of Kerry Lamb shanks with tomato and rosemary


8 lamb shanks, trimmed*
plain (all-purpose) flour, for dusting
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 onions, sliced
4 cloves garlic, sliced
1 cup (250ml) red wine
2½ cups (625ml) beef stock
1 x 400g can crushed tomatoes
1 tablespoon rosemary leaves
2 tablespoons chopped flat-leaf parsley leaves
sea salt and cracked black pepper
mashed potato, to serve


Toss the lamb shanks in flour, shaking off any excess. Place half of the oil in a large casserole over high heat. Add the shanks and brown well. Remove and set aside. Add the remaining oil to the pan and cook the onions and garlic until golden. Return the shanks to the pan. Add the wine, stock, tomatoes and rosemary and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat, cover and simmer for 1 hour.
Remove the shanks and continue to simmer the sauce, uncovered, for 10 minutes or until reduced and thickened. Return the shanks to the pan with the parsley, salt and pepper. Mix through and serve with mashed potatoes. Serves 4.
