Cell Block C Lamb Shanks


2 Lamb Shanks
4 Red Potatoes, cut into large chunks
1 Fennel Bulb, sliced
4 Garlic Cloves, minced
1 Sprig of Rosemary
1 1/2c Red Wine
1 1/2c Beef/Veal Broth

This cut of lamb (the upper leg where it meets the shoulder) is called a shank because you can whittle the bone against the corner of a concrete wall to make a shiv so you can shank the motherfucker who stole your pudding. Better watch your back on the exercise yard, bitch. No one takes my pudding without a subsequent trip to the nurse's station.

Get out your Le Creuset, brown the shanks on all sides, and remove from the pot. Reserve the blood and place it over your cell door to ward off that dickhead Angel of Death. Toss in the potatoes and fennel and stir that shit around for a minute before you add the garlic. Once the garlic is slightly fragrant, throw in the rosemary and liquids, return the shanks to the pot, cover, and place in a 300 degree oven for like three hours or something. I didn't really keep track. Just cook it until it is done, genius. Garnish with a pretty fennel frond. Eat it.
