Steps

  • 1 Stir together in a small bowl the ground cumin, coriander, thyme, rosemary, curry powder, and salt.
  • Mix in 1/4 cup olive oil.
  • Place lamb shanks in large freezer bag.
  • Add the spice oil to the bag. Rub spice oil all over shanks. Press the air out of the bag and seal the bag.
  • Place in a dish to catch any leakage. Marinate 4 hours or overnight. 2 Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Heat 1 Tbsp olive oil in heavy large ovenproof pot over high heat.
  • Remove lamb shanks from marinade bag and place in heated pan. Discard remaining marinade. Cook lamb shanks until brown on all sides, turning occasionally, about 10 minutes.
  • Add stock and garlic; bring to boil, cover and transfer to oven. Cook 1 hour; remove from oven and turn lamb shanks over. Cover and continue cooking until lamb is tender, about 45 minutes longer. Using tongs, transfer lamb to platter; tent with foil to keep warm. 3 Bring liquid in pot to simmer over medium heat.
  • Add carrots; simmer 10 minutes.
  • Add potatoes to liquid and simmer 5 minutes longer.
  • Add tomatoes and zucchini to liquid and simmer until vegetables are just tender, about 5 minutes. Using slotted spoon, transfer vegetables to platter with lamb. Spoon off fat from braising liquid, reserving 1 tablespoon. 4
  • Heat reserved fat in heavy large skillet over medium heat. (If there is no fat, heat 1 Tbsp olive oil instead.)
  • Whisk in flour; stir 2 minutes.
  • Whisk in tomato paste and 1 cup of the braising liquid.
  • Add back into the pot with the rest of the braising liquid. Boil for a couple minutes until slightly thickened.
  • Add back the vegetables and the lamb shanks. If you want, use a couple forks to break away the lamb meat from the bones. Discard the bones.
