Ingredients
  

  • 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tbsp garlic
  • 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 4 whole lamb shanks
  • 2 tbsp olive oil extra virgin
  • 1/2 onion diced
  • 1 tbsp garlic
  • 1 tbsp pomegranate molasses

  • Meanwhile, heat the olive oil in a braising pan on medium heat.

  • Add the bay leaf, sage, salt, and beans with their liquid, and water or red wine.
  • Simmer on low heat until lamb is tender and beans are heated through, about 15– 20 depending on the thickness of the lamb and how well done you like it.
  • Garnish lamb and beans with pomegranate seeds and parsley.
