Spicy Lamb Shanks
To make it easier to peel onions, place onions in a saucepan with water. Bring to boiling and cook for 30 seconds. Slice off the root ends and squeeze onions from peels.
Prepare orange peel and orange juice mixture as above in Step 1. Place lamb shanks in a 5- to 6-quart Dutch oven. Top with orange peel and cinnamon sticks. Pour orange juice mixture over all. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Cover and simmer for 1 hour. Top with carrots, onions, and garlic. Cover and simmer for 30 minutes to 1 hour longer or until meat and vegetables are tender. Continue as in Step 3 except prepare and thicken the sauce in the Dutch oven.
