  • 4 medium lamb shanks (about 2 1/2 pounds total)
  • 1 cup red wine
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 10 whole black peppercorns
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  1. Place the lamb shanks in a deep skillet or saucepan. Add the red wine, water, bay leaf, and peppercorns. Sprinkle with the salt and bring to a boil over medium heat.

  2. Reduce the heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer, turning the shanks every 20 minutes, for 90 minutes or more, until the meat is tender and easily comes off the bone. Reduce the heat further or add a little water as necessary to keep the shanks from burning.

  3. Transfer the shanks to a serving plate. Cook the sauce over medium heat for 3 to 5 minutes more to thicken. Pour the sauce over the shanks and serve.
