Mediterranean Braised Lamb Shanks

Chef Adrian Giese is a seasoned chef and executive chef of Mastro’s Restaurant in Los Angeles, California. Adrian was so excited to install a 36″ Indoor Professional Range in his home that he wanted to share some of his favorite recipes with the Caliber community.

Now that we’ve stepped into the fall season, Chef Adrian’s Mediterranean braised lamb shanks made on the Caliber Indoor Pro Range is the perfect recipe to share as his first of what he hopes to be many more culinary delights from his kitchen.

Generously season the lamb shanks with salt, coriander and black pepper. In a small cast iron Dutch oven, heat up the oil on a medium heat and sear the lamb shanks on all sides until you have a rich golden brown color. Remove the shanks and set aside. In the same pan, turn down to a medium low heat and add the onions, carrots and anchovies. Sauté until slightly translucent. Then add the garlic, tomato paste, and chopped herbs and sauté until the garlic smells sweet (about two minutes). Place the shanks back into the pan along with any juices and add the red wine. Be sure to scrape the bottom of the pan to release all the bits. Add the chicken stock and bring to a simmer. Place the lid on top and turn the heat to low and cook for 1-3/4 hours. Remove the lid and simmer for another 1/2 hour to reduce the liquid. The meat should be tender and falling away from the bone. Adjust the seasoning of the sauce with a little salt and add one tablespoon of butter for extra richness and shine.

Ingredients:
2 Lamb shanks
2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 Medium onion – 1” dice
4 Baby carrots peeled and sliced 1/2” thick
4 Large cloves garlic – roughly chopped
2 Brown cured anchovies (optional)
2 Packed Tbsp Italian parsley finely chopped
1 Tbsp chopped oregano
1 tsp thyme leaves de-stemmed
2 Tbsp tomato paste
1 tsp cracked coriander seeds
6 oz red wine (Cabernet Sauvignon / Chianti)
1- 1/2 cups chicken stock
Kosher salt
Fresh cracked pepper
1 Tbsp butter

Chef Chris of Luxury Reps and Chef Amanda of PIRCH (San Diego, CA) made an amazing dish of grilled pork belly, polenta and shrimp while entertaining with new homeowners from a Ranch Santa Fe neighborhood. This was a great way to meet new neighbors while also getting ideas on what to include in their outdoor landscaping.

Chef Adrian Giese (Featured Installation, Los Angeles, CA)

As the executive chef of Mastro’s Restaurant in Los Angeles, Adrian strives to make his guests happy with the food he creates. His love for food started at a young age by tasting food from all over the world. As soon as he could see over the stove, he started experimenting in the kitchen. Professionally, he has honed his culinary career by working with many great chefs at Stokes Adobe of Monterey, Roy’s Hawaiian Fusion, Monterey Plaza Hotel, and Peppoli of Pebble Beach. As executive chef of Mastro’s Restaurant, his love for making people happy with food has never changed.

With over fifteen years of professional experience in the kitchen, Adrian wanted to bring a top-of-the-line range into his home, and so he sought out Caliber. He loved the level of customization he was able to get from Caliber Appliances. He not only chose stainless steel grates and a custom matte black finish but also copper trim, knob and handle finishes to match his copper pots and cabinetry hardware. He additionally worked with our friends at Vent-A-Hood to pair his hood to the range. Now, with both exceptional style and performance thanks to his Caliber Indoor Pro Range, he never stops cooking while at home. Adrian shared his first of what we hope to be many more recipes cooked up on the Caliber Indoor Range. Click here for the Mediterranean braised lamb shank recipe.
