Braised Lamb Shank with Sweet & Savory Caponata

 
Braised Lamb Shanks

February 5th 2014By joyofkosher

This is one of my favorite dishes because of the braising technique. The shank, a less desirable and inexpensive cut of the lamb, is slowly tenderized with deep fl avors from the caponata. The vegetables are cooked down very slowly, which allows all of the natural sweetness to be released. When combined with the brininess of the olives and the woodsy flavors of the rosemary, this dish becomes extremely balanced.
