Ingredients

  • 6 lamb shanks (about 4 lb/1.8 kg)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 onion finely diced
  • 1 1/2 cup diced carrots
  • 1 1/2 cup diced fennel
  • 1 1/2 cup diced celery
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon fennel seeds
  • 1 cup dry white wine
  • 1 cup sodium-reduced chicken broth
  • 1 cup sodium-reduced chicken broth
  • 2 cans navy beans drained and rinsed
  • 1/2 cup chopped drained oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley

Method

Sprinkle lamb with salt and pepper. In Dutch oven, heat half of the oil over medium-high heat; brown lamb. Transfer to slow cooker.

Drain fat from pan; add remaining oil. Cook onion, carrot, fennel, garlic, thyme and fennel seeds over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until onion is softened, about 5 minutes.

Add wine and broth to Dutch oven; bring to boil, scraping up browned bits. Stir into slow cooker along with beans and tomatoes.

Cover and cook on low until lamb separates easily from bone, about 6 hours. Transfer lamb to platter; cover and keep warm.

Skim off fat in slow cooker. Stir in parsley. Spoon bean mixture into shallow bowls; top with lamb.
