Lamb Braised in Red Wine Recipe
  • Trim off any excess fat and cut lamb into small cubes, about 3/4". Salt and pepper lightly. Finely dice the carrot, celery, onion and garlic.
  • Heat oil (medium-high) in Dutch oven or heavy saucepan with lid. Brown lamb in hot oil, in batches if necessary to prevent crowding. Remove meat, leaving browned bits. Let pan cool 1 minute, then add 1/2 cup water and stir to incorporate browned bits.
  • Add vegetables and cook, stirring, until the water has evaporated. Reduce heat to medium-low, sprinkle on the flour and rosemary and stir in. Add browned lamb and any accumulated juices. Add wine.
  • Adjust heat to maintain a simmer , cover, and cook 2 hours or until lamb is tender. Check occasionally to make sure there's enough liquid. Add water, if necessary, so there is about 1 cup of sauce when the meat is done. Taste for seasoning and serve with pasta, rice, or mashed potatoes.
