Here’s a foolproof wintery braised lamb dish with deep, deep, rich flavor. In this video, you’ll see how to make lamb shanks braised with saba, the sweet Italian condiment that’s a bit like balsamic vinegar. You’ll give the shanks a wet rub with smoked paprika and rosemary. And then lay them down on a bed of onions. You’ll brown them in a hot oven and then pour saba and stock into the roasting pan, finishing them off in the oven, cooking until the meat is joyously tender. It's so easy. Watch the video, then get the recipe for Chef John’s Saba-Braised Lamb Shanks. Enjoy with mashed potatoes and simple greens. See more Chef John videos >>
