Here’s a sure-thing recipe. In this video, Chef John shows you how to make incredibly flavorful, slow-braised lamb shanks. It’s a totally foolproof recipe. You’d really have to work at it to mess this one up. The shanks get a nice slow-roast in a deeply flavorful, aromatic red-wine, stock, balsamic vinegar, and herb broth. Watch the video, then get the recipe for Chef John’s Jinx-Proof Braised Lamb Shanks. This one’s a great choice for cool-weather dining or when you need an impressive dinner (Valentine’s Day?) and there’s no room for error.
