Slow-roasted lamb shanks with tomato and olives
8 (2kg) French-trimmed lamb shanks
¼ cup (35g) plain flour
salt and pepper
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 cloves garlic, crushed
¾ cup (180ml) dry white wine
¾ cup (180ml) salt-reduced beef stock
2 x 400g cans chopped tomatoes
6 anchovy fillets, drained, chopped coarsely
½ teaspoon dried chilli flakes
1 sprig fresh basil
1 cup (150g) black olives
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
½ cup small fresh basil leaves, extra
Preheat oven to moderate (180°C/160°C fan-forced).
Toss the lamb in combined flour, salt and pepper; shake away excess flour. Heat the oil in a 3-litre (12-cup) capacity flameproof casserole or baking dish; cook lamb shanks, in batches, until well browned all over. Remove the shanks from dish and drain on absorbent paper.

Cover with lid or tightly with foil; cook in a moderate oven for about 2 hours or until lamb is tender, turning lamb halfway through cooking. Remove lamb from dish; cover to keep warm.
Add the olives and vinegar to tomato mixture in dish; simmer, uncovered, over medium heat for about 5 minutes or until thickened slightly. Remove basil sprig.
Sprinkle extra basil leaves over lamb and sauce; serve with risoni tossed with a little butter, if desired.
