DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
  • In a large, heavy casserole, heat the oil until almost smoking over medium-high heat.
  • Add the lamb shanks and brown on all sides, about 15 minutes. If you cannot fit the shanks without crowding, just do 2 at a time.
  • Stir in the onion, adjust the heat down to medium, and cook until the onion is wilted and pale, about 4-5 minutes.
  • Blend in the lemon and orange slices, tomatoes, stock, wine, honey, cinnamon stick, salt and pepper. Bring the liquid to a boil, stir to combine the ingredients, cover the casserole and transfer to the preheated oven.
  • Bake the lamb shanks until they are very tender, about 1 hour and 45 minutes.
  • Remove the cover and skim off the fat, return the pot to the oven, partially covered, for another 15 minutes, turning the shanks a couple of times during this time.
  • Serve over cooked pasta or bulgur.
