Oxmoor House SEPTEMBER 2012

  • Yield: 12 servings (serving size: about 3 ounces lamb and 2/3 cup bean mixture)

Ingredients

  • 4 (1 1/2-pound) lamb shanks
  • 1 (19-ounce) can cannellini beans or other white beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 1/2 cups diced peeled carrot
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 3/4 cup chopped celery
  • 2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  • 2 teaspoons dried tarragon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 (28-ounce) can diced tomatoes, undrained

Preparation

1. Trim fat from lamb shanks. Place beans and next 4 ingredients (through garlic) in a 7-quart electric slow cooker; stir well. Place lamb shanks on bean mixture; sprinkle with tarragon, salt, and pepper. Pour tomatoes over lamb. Cover and cook on HIGH for 1 hour. Reduce heat to LOW, and cook 9 hours or until lamb is very tender.

2. Remove lamb shanks from slow cooker. Pour bean mixture through a colander or sieve over a bowl, reserving liquid. Let liquid stand 5 minutes; skim fat from surface of liquid. Return bean mixture to liquid. Remove lamb from bones; discard bones. Serve lamb with bean mixture.

Nutrition Tip: Canned beans are a convenient option when you don't have time to prepare dried beans--the drawback is the sodium content. Reduce the sodium content of any variety of canned beans by 40 percent simply by draining and rinsing them.
