Ingredients :

  • 4 lamb shanks
  • salt and ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 onion
  • sliced
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • sliced
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 teaspoon tomato paste
  • 1 teaspoon chipotle chile powder
  • 1 teaspoon ancho chile powder
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 3 jalapeno peppers
  • seeded and sliced
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • seeded and sliced
  • ½ cup chicken broth
  • ¼ cup chopped cilantro
  • salt and ground black pepper to taste
  • Methods :

  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Generously season lamb shanks with salt and black pepper.
  • Heat vegetable oil in a large Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Place lamb shanks in the Dutch oven, cook, turning, until browned on all sides, about 10 minutes. Transfer shanks to a plate. Drain off remaining oil and fat so only 1 tablespoon remains in the Dutch oven.
  • Stir onion, garlic, and a pinch of salt into the Dutch oven; decrease heat to medium-low and cook, stirring, until onions are softened and translucent, about 5 minutes. Add tomato paste, chipotle chile powder, ancho chile powder, and ground cinnamon; stir to combine.
  • Pour 1 cup chicken broth over onion mixture. Increase heat to high; when liquid boils, place lamb shanks in Dutch oven. Cover and cook in the preheated oven for 90 minutes.
  • Remove Dutch oven and stir in jalapeno pepper, red bell pepper and 1/2 cup chicken stock; bring to a boil on the stovetop. Return pan to the oven and cook, uncovered, until lamb shanks are fork tender, about 20 minutes. Transfer lamb to plate.
  • Place Dutch oven on the stovetop over high heat; bring liquid to a boil and cook, skimming off any foam, until liquid is reduced and thickened, about 5 minutes. Stir in cilantro; season with salt and pepper to taste. Spoon sauce over lamb shanks and serve.
