Braised Lamb Shanks

2 tbsp - canola oil
1 kg or 4 - lamb shanks
2 cups - onion, chopped
2 tbsp - garlic, minced
1 cup - celery, chopped
2 - bay leaves
1 cup - red wine
3 tbsp - tomato paste
10 cups - vegetable or lamb stock
2 - rosemary sprigs
3 - carrots, peeled
2 - parsnips, peeled
2 - baby golden beets, peeled
6 - baby potatoes
2 cups - Swiss chard or kale, chopped
1 tsp - lemon zest
1tbsp - parsley, chopped

Heat oil to a high temperature in a wide braising pan or Dutch oven and sear the shanks on all sides, about 2 minutes per side. Add onion, garlic, celery and bay leaves and sauté until the onions are caramelized. Add the wine and let simmer until the liquid reduces by a quarter. Add the tomato paste and sauté for another 5 minutes.

Add the stock and rosemary into the pan and bring to a boil. Cover with a lid and either let it simmer on low heat or place in a 350F oven for 60 minutes.

After 60 minutes, add the carrots, parsnips, golden beets and potatoes. Simmer on the stovetop until the veggies and lamb are both tender. Remove the vegetables with tongs and cut them into three-inch pieces. Add the veggies back to the pot, along with Swiss chard and stir. Sprinkle lemon zest and parsley on top and serve.
