  • 2 lamb shanks
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 yellow onion
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 5-6 garlic cloves
  • 5 baby portobello mushrooms
  • 1/4 cup wine
  • salt, pepper, rosemary and thyme to taste

Preheat the oven to 350F.
Season and brown the meat in olive oil over hi heat for about 5-6 minutes on each side.

Transfer the meat into the oven safe pan.

Caramelize the onions and garlic in the remaining oil on the pan. Add sugar.

Place caramelized onions over the meat to prevent it from drying out on the oven. Put carrots on top of onions. De glaze the pan with wine and pour over the meat and onions as well.

Bake covered for 2 hours. Uncover and add chopped mushrooms. Continue baking for another 20 minutes uncovered.

Serve with mashed potatoes. Use the sauce to pour over the meat and potatoes.
