Ingredients
  1. 6 meaty lamb shanks
  2. Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  3. 2 tablespoons olive oil
  4. 2 onions, chopped
  5. 3 large carrots, chopped
  6. 10 cloves garlic, chopped
  7. 2 cups red wine
  8. 1 (28-ounce) can whole tomatoes with juice
  9. 2 cups chicken stock
  10. 1 cup beef stock
  11. 1 1/2 tablespoons chopped fresh rosemary
  12. 2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme
Instructions
  1. Heat the olive oil in the 5 QT. braiser over medium-high heat. Add the shanks and cook until evenly browned, about 2 minutes per side. Transfer shanks to a platter.
  2. Return the skillet to medium heat. Add the onions, carrots and garlic. Cook until the onions are browned, 5 - 7 minutes. Increase the heat to high and stir in the wine, scraping the bottom and sides to loosen any browned bits. Bring to a boil and add the tomatoes, chicken stock, beef stock, rosemary and thyme. Return the shanks and juices that have collected to the skillet. Bring to a boil, cover and reduce the heat to low, or place the braiser in a 325°F oven (or a temperature that will just maintain a simmer).
  3. Your Le Creuset cookware gives you two options: cook on the range top or cook in the oven. Whatever method you choose, cook, covered, at a simmer until the meat is tender, about 2 1/2 hours. If you chose the oven method return the pan to the stovetop, remove the cover and increase the heat to medium-high. Cook until the liquid begins to thicken, 20 - 30 minutes. Transfer the shanks to a serving platter and cook the liquid until thick, about 15 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Pour over the shanks and serve.

Ingredients
  1. 1.15 lb. Leg of Lamb (can be boneless or with bone depending on preference)
  2. 1 stick Unsalted Butter (room temperature)
  3. 2 tbsp. Fresh Thyme (chopped finely)
  4. ¼ cup Fresh Rosemary (chopped finely)
  5. ¼ cup Fresh Oregano (chopped finely)
  6. 1 ½ tbsp. Garlic (chopped)
  7. ¼ cup Olive Oil
  8. Zest of 1 Lemon
  9. 1 ½ tsp. Kosher Salt
  10. ½ tsp. Ground Black Pepper
  11. 2 tbsp. Lemon Juice
  12. 1 extra Lemon
  13. 1 bulb of Garlic (halved with skins on)
  14. Few extra pinches of salt
Instructions
  1. Set EGG for indirect cooking at 375°F/177°C.
  2. Trim of silver skin or any extra fat (optional, I prefer to keep most of fat on there.)
  3. Truss lamb to stay together during cooking process and place in a plastic container. Set aside.
  4. In a medium bowl, combine the butter, herbs, garlic, olive oil, zest, spices and lemon juice. Using the back of a fork mix very well until all of the butter clumps are gone and you are left with smooth mixture. Set ¼ cup of the mixture aside.
  5. Sprinkle the lamb with salt and then rub the herb mixture onto the lamb and place into a roasting pan that fits on the EGG.
  6. Half the extra lemon and place that cut side down on the roasting pan next to the lamb along with the halved garlic bulb (facing cut side up).
  7. Roast for 1 ½ hours or until the internal temperature reads 130°F/54°C when a thermometer is inserted into the thickest part of the roast. (130°F/54°C will be Medium Rare.)
  8. Spoon the drippings onto lamb every 20-30 minutes while it is cooking.
  9. (Optional) About 10 minutes before the lamb is cooked, spoon the rest of the mixture onto the lamb. Optionally, spoon extra mixture onto lamb as it is sliced.
  10. Squeeze the garlic and extra lemon onto lamb before serving it (Optional.)
  11. Enjoy!
