4 lamb shanks, Frenched

Seasoned flour:
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon paprika
Pinch cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper

10 tablespoons olive oil - divided use
1 tablespoon garlic, chopped - divided use

  2. In a heavy-bottomed pan, heat 4 tablespoons of oil and brown shanks on all sides.
  3. Remove shanks from pan and add 3 tablespoons of garlic and 1 teaspoon of rosemary. Cook about 2 minutes until garlic is lightly browned.
  4. Add the tomatoes and 1 cup of beef broth. Return the shanks to the pan, bring to a boil and reduce to a simmer.
