Minestrone Lamb Shanks

2 Hr 20 Min

You can't miss with these plump, tender lamb shanks combined with a hearty minestrone taste and a sauce that's perfect for dunking. (Don't forget the crusty bread!)

What You'll Need

  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 4 lamb shanks (10 to 12 ounces each)
  • 1 can (19 ounces) minestrone soup
  • 1 can (10 ounces) condensed beef broth
  • 1 can (14 ounces) stewed tomatoes
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 3/4 cup instant mashed potato flakes

What to Do

  1. In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium heat. Brown the lamb shanks, turning occasionally, for 15 to 20 minutes, or until evenly browned.

  2. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine the remaining ingredients except the potato flakes; mix well and pour over the shanks.

  3. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to low, cover, and simmer for 2 to 21/2 hours or until the shanks are fork-tender.

  4. Remove the shanks to a serving platter.

  5. Add the potato flakes to the pan juices; mix well and simmer for 3 to 4 minutes, or until thickened. Return the shanks to the skillet and coat with the sauce.
