Lamb Shanks, Osso Buco-Style
The recipe can be prepared through Step 3 and refrigerated overnight. Spoon the cold fat from the surface and bring the lamb shanks to room temperature before reheating them in a 325° oven for about 45 minutes.
Rutabaga Mash, boiled noodles, potatoes or rice.
The heartiness of the slow-cooked shanks calls out for equally lusty wines that have enough flavor to stand up to the braised meat. Joshua Wesson serves a full-bodied Alsace Pinot Gris or lushly textured Cabernet Sauvignon blend.
