Lamb shank in white wine and rosemary sauce

« A lamb shank draws out our primary instincts: I can hardly help myself from grabbing this piece of meat by the bone and tearing off a hunk with my teeth. This is a very easy dish to make and, to be precise, tends more towards being a slow-cooked stew than an actual meat dish »

Serves 4


  • Peel and slice the carrots
  • Peel and coarsely chop the onions
  • Skin the tomatoes by plunging them in boiling water for 1 minute before peeling them, then remove the seeds and mash the tomatoes into a purée
  • Finely chop the rosemary and oregano
  • Finely crush the coriander seeds.
  • Pour the flour on a board or a large plate
  • Add the rosemary, oregano, crushed coriander seeds, and fleur de sel
  • Coat the lamb shank with the seasoned flour, pressing down well
  • Heat the olive oil in a casserole at high heat
  • Sear the lamb shank in the casserole, making sure to brown the entire surface
  • Remove the lamb from the casserole and set aside
  • Add the carrots and onion to the casserole and sweat them for a few minutes
  • Deglaze with balsamic vinegar and allow it to reduce for 1 minute
  • Reduce heat and add the white wine
  • Place the lamb shank back into the casserole
  • Add the tomato purée
  • Sprinkle with the Espelette pepper and black pepper
  • Mix in the anchovy filets that you have previously made into a purée
  • Cover and cook for 2 to 3 hours in an oven preheated to 350°F (180°C) (th 6); stir from time to time, coating the shank with its own juice.
  • Finish cooking out of the oven with the top off at medium heat to reduce the stock.
  • Chop the fresh coriander and flatleaf parsley, then sprinkle it on a plate 5 minutes before serving


You'll see that this recipe is child’s play and practically impossible to botch. The lamb shank is served stewed, so I suggest only that you cook it slowly and tenderly. The shank should not be served pink in color. It should be ready to eat when you can serve it with a spoon. The shank meat should come apart by itself.

Serve one shank per person accompanied by the sauce, and serve with gratin dauphinois.

I recommend you visit Pascale Weeks’ blog (Blog C'est moi qui l'ai fait) where you’ll find another way to cook lamb shank with an oriental twist, a dish that bears close resemblance to tajine
