DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 375ºF.
  • Heat oil in heavy large Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Season lamb shanks with salt and pepper. Working in batches, add lamb to Dutch oven; brown on all sides, about 8 minutes per batch. Transfer lamb to plate. Add carrots, celery, onion and garlic to Dutch oven; saute until light brown, about 4 minutes. Add 1 3/4 cups wine; bring to boil, scraping up any browned bits, about 2 minutes. Add both broths, rosemary and bay leaves. Return lamb to Dutch oven; cover. Cook in oven until lamb is very tender, stirring occasionally, about 1 hour 30 minutes.
  • Transfer lamb shanks to platter. Tent with foil. Strain cooking liquid, reserving vegetables. Discard bay leaves. Return liquid to Dutch oven. Boil liquid until reduced to 1 1/2 cups, about 10 minutes. Mix remaining 1/4 cup wine with cornstarch until smooth. Add to cooking liquid and simmer until thickened, stirring frequently, about 5 minutes. Return lamb and vegetables to Dutch oven. (Can be prepared 1 day ahead. Cover and refrigerate.).
  • Simmer lamb until heated through. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Arrange lamb and vegetables on platter. Spoon sauce over. Garnish with rosemary sprigs and serve.
