BRAISED LAMB SHANKS|
4 lamb shanks
3 to 4 Tbsp. flour
2 Tbsp. salad oil
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 to 1 1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. oregano
1/4 tsp. pepper
2 to 4 potatoes, pared and
1 c. clear chicken broth
1 Tbsp. lemon juice
4 carrots, pared and halved
4 small onions, peeled
4 stalks celery, quartered
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Remove excess fat from shanks.
Wipe with damp paper towels. Coat well with flour. Slowly
heat oil in Dutch oven. In it brown shanks well, turning on
all sides. Add garlic, salt, oregano, pepper, broth and lemon
juice. Cover and bake 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 hours, or until lamb is
almost tender. Add carrots, onions, celery and potatoes;
