Easy Baked Lamb Shanks (ARNI STO FOURNO)

From Peach:

This dish is much easier to make than one might think.  Simple and delicious and does not need much attention once it is together in the oven.  It can be topped off with some crumbled feta when it is piping hot or not.  Growing up in a Greek home lamb was plentiful and made in many ways..this being my favorite.  Give it a try and I bet it will become your favorite too.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 4 lamb shanks trimmed of as much fat as possible.
  • 1 box white button mushrooms
  • 1/2 box orzo
  • 1  15 oz. can tomato sauce
  • beef broth
Place trimmed lamb shanks in a large roasting pan.  Combine tomato sauce and enough beef broth to fill pan 3/4 way up the sides. Seal tightly with foil and bake at 350 degrees for about 2 1/2 hour.  Do not disturb during this time.
Remove foil and add mushrooms and orzo and stir gently.  Put back in oven uncovered and cook stirring occasionally till orzo tender.  The lamb will brown beautifully during this part of the cooking process.  Total cooking time is about 3 hours. (This will ensure the lamb will be very tender).
KALI ORAXI EVERYONE.
