Orange-Tequila Lamb Shanks

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Remove 1 tsp. zest and squeeze 1/2 cup juice from oranges; set aside. In a 4-qt. ovengoing Dutch oven heat oil over medium-high heat. Add lamb shanks and cook until browned on all sides. Remove from Dutch oven.
  2. For sauce, add onion, jalapeno pepper, and garlic to drippings in Dutch oven. Cook 5 minutes or until onion is tender, stirring occasionally. Carefully add tequila. Cook 4 minutes or until nearly evaporated, stirring to scrape up any crusty brown bits.
  3. Stir in orange zest and juice and next five ingredients (through salt). Bring to boiling. Return lamb shanks to Dutch oven. Cover and transfer to oven. Bake 2 to 2 1/2 hours or until meat is tender.
  4. Serve lamb shanks with polenta. Skim fat from sauce; discard. Spoon sauce over shanks and polenta. If desired, sprinkle with additional orange zest and rosemary.
