4. Next, add the wine, stock, herbs, tomatoes, hot sauce, and spices

5. Return the lamb shanks to the pot and make sure they are just barely covered in liquid

6. Gently bring all to a low boil

7. Cook covered for three hours on low temperature

8. Remove lamb shanks and place on a plate in the oven while you make the pan sauce

 

Pan Sauce:

 

1a. Separate approximately 1 litre of the braising liquid by pouring it through a mesh strainer

2a. Boil the liquid until it reduces to a thicker sauce

3a. When the sauce is starting to thicken, whisk in the butter and mustard

4a. Remove from heat

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Final step:

 

Plate your lamb and drizzle with the pan sauce.
