Description (Some HTML is OK)

Wonderfully spiced lamb for a special occasion. Original recipe found at epicurious.com


Ingredients

Makes 4 servings

  • 2 tablespoons coriander seeds
  • 2 tablespoons fennel seeds
  • 1 tablespoon black peppercorns
  • 4 large lamb shanks (about 5 pounds)
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 1 large white onion, cut into 1 1/2-inch pieces
  • 10 garlic cloves, peeled
  • 3 celery stalks, cut crosswise into 1 1/2-inch pieces
  • 2 carrots, peeled, cut crosswise into 1 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1 small leek
  • 3 cups Marsala
  • 4 cups chicken stock
  • 6 whole cloves
  • 2 whole star anise
  • 2 bay leaves

Preparation (Some HTML is OK)

Mix coriander, fennel, and peppercorns in heavy small skillet. Toast on medium-high heat until aromatic and slightly darker, about 2 minutes. Transfer to spice grinder; process until finely ground. Rub each shank with 1 rounded teaspoon spice blend. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Heat 2 tablespoons oil in heavy large wide pot over medium-high heat. Add shanks to pot. Cook until brown on all sides, about 20 minutes. Transfer to large bowl. Add remaining 2 tablespoons oil to same pot. Add onion and next 4 ingredients; sauté over medium heat until vegetables begin to soften, about 5 minutes. Add remaining spice blend and stir 1 minute. Add Marsala and simmer until liquid is reduced to 2/3 cup, about 15 minutes. Add stock and boil for 10 minutes.
Preheat oven to 350°F. Return shanks to pot. Add cloves, star anise and bay leaves. Cover pot with foil, then lid. Place pot in oven and braise lamb until tender, about 2 hours.
