Scotch Lamb shank with red wine

Scotch Lamb shank with red wine

Serves 4


  • 4 Scotch Lamb shanks

  • 3 cloves of garlic

  • 1/2 bottle of red wine

  • Thyme

  • 3 medium onions

  • 3 bay leaves

  • Sprig of rosemary

  • 2 carrots

  • 2 tbsp tomato puree

  • 500 ml beef stock

  • Sea salt and ground black pepper

Cooking Method

The secret to a meltingly tender lamb shank is a slow even cook.

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 150C.
  2. Pop a heavy based casserole dish on to a medium heat and add some rapeseed oil to the pan.
  3. Once the dish is smoking hot, sear the lamb shanks individually. Press the meat down and give each side around a minute.
  4. Prepare the vegetables by roughly chopping the onions and carrots.
  5. Add the onions to the casserole dish first, then add the carrots.
  6. Add the rosemary, thyme and bay leaf to the vegetables. These can be added whole to infuse the disk with flavour whilst making them easy to remove once cooked.
  7. Add salt and pepper to season
  8. Roughly chop the 3 cloves of garlic, pop them in the own and cook gently for a couple of minutes.
  9. Add some tomato puree to enrich the sauce and cook for a further couple of minutes.
  10. Add 500ml of beef stock
  11. Add a glass of red wine
  12. Add the shanks to the mix and cook the dish in the oven for 2.5 – 3 hrs
  13. Serve and enjoy!
