Prep time 10 mins
Cook 2 hours
2 small lamb shanks
1 tsp olive oil
salt & pepper, to taste
1 onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 carrot, diced
1 sprig fresh rosemary, leaves picked & finely chopped
3 cups beef stock
1 cup tomato passata
1 celeriac, peeled & 3 cm diced
1/2 lemon, juice & zest
2 tbs chopped fresh parsley, to serve
1. Preheat oven to 150°C.
2. Heat oil in a large ovenproof saucepan over high heat. Rub shanks with oil, season with salt and pepper and cook for 5 minutes, turning a few times until browned. Set aside.
3. Reduce heat to medium and add onion, garlic, carrot and rosemary and cook for 5 minutes until onion is translucent.
4. Stir through stock and passata and return shanks to pot. Bring to boil, reduce to a simmer, cover tightly with lid, and transfer to over to cook for 2 hours, or until meat falls off the bone. Adjust seasoning.
5. Thirty minutes before lamb is cooked, place celeriac in a saucepan, cover with cold water, season with salt and pepper and simmer for 15-20 minutes. Drain, reserving sufficient water to mash with 2 tsp lemon juice. Adjust seasoning.
