  • 2 md onions chopped (2 cups)
  • 2 md carrots chopped (1 cup)
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 md leek
  • 4 lg lamb shanks about
  • 1 poundsawed crosswise into thirds
  • 5 T olive oil
  • 3 bay leaves
  • 3 1/2 c fresh chicken stock
  • 1 t salt
  • 3 T fresh dill leaves loosely packed
  • 2 lemons
  • 1/3 cup
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 t pepper Fresh Ground


  • PREPARATION: Peel onions, carrots, and garlic. Chop and put onions and carrots in a bowl with garlic. Rinse, trim, and chop leek, (using white portion and about 2 inches of the green), and add to the bowl. Pat shanks dry.
  • COOKING: Adjust oven rack to middle position and heat oven to 350F. Heat 2 tablespoons of oil in a 5-quart Dutch oven until hot but not smoking. Working in batches, sear lamb shanks over high heat until they are browned on all sides, about 7 minutes; set shanks aside. 
  • Discard cooking fat and add remaining oil, vegetables and bay leaves. Cover and saut over low heat, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are lightly colored, about 15 minutes. 
  • Return shanks and accumulated juices to the pot along with stock and 1 teaspoon salt. Bring stock to a boil, reduce heat to low, and simmer, covered, for 45 minutes.
  • Uncover and simmer until lamb is tender, 55-60 minutes. Remove shanks. Strain stock and return it to the pot. Bring to a boil, skimming it well, and reduce to 1 3/4 cups. 
  • Can cover and refrigerate shanks in the stock for up to 2 days.)
  • SERVING: If made ahead, heat shanks in foil in oven until hot. Bring stock to a boil. Mince dill. Squeeze 1/3 cup lemon juice into a medium bowl, whisk in eggs, and then slowly whisk in hot stock. 
  • Stir in dill and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Return the shanks to the pot, add the lemon-egg mixture and cook over low heat, gently stirring and shaking the pot, until shanks are warmed through and sauce has thickened slightly, about 5 minutes. Do not let sauce simmer or eggs may curdle
