Instant Pot Lamb Shanks Recipe

Instant Pot Lamb Shanks


Lamb Shanks



  1. In a bowl, add the flour and combine with the salt and pepper.
  2. Coat each lamb shank in the flour.
  3. Set the instant pot to sauté and add the oil.
  4. Cook the lamb shanks in batches. Cook until each side is browned (Roughly 3-5 minutes). Once cooked, place the lamb shanks to the side.
  5. Add the onion, garlic, celery, and carrots. Cook for 1 minute.
  6. Next, add the red wine and cook for one minute.
  7. Now, add the sugar, thyme, diced tomatoes, Worcestershire sauce, tomato paste, bay leaf, and chicken stock. Mix until combined.
  8. Lastly, add the lamb shanks so that they are covered with the stewing liquid.
  9. Secure the lid and seal the Instant Pot. Cook on high pressure for 45 minutes.
  10. Allow to sit for 10 minutes before manually releasing the pressure.
  11. If the sauce is runny, you might want to thicken it by mixing in a cornstarch paste. I recommend combining two tablespoons of cornstarch with two tablespoons of water, then mixing it into the sauce. Set to sauté and cook for 5 minutes or until thickened.
  12. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  13. Serve & Enjoy.
