Chef Tim Love
This hearty one-dish meal is a wonderful version of the classic British dish known as shepherd's pie.


  • Stew3 American lamb shanks
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/4 cup chile powder
  • 1 Tbs kosher salt
  • 1 Tbs cracked black pepper
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 cup diced onions
  • 1 cup diced celery
  • 1 cup diced carrots
  • 6 cloves garlic
  • 1 cup white wine
  • 4 cups beef broth
  • 2 sprigs thyme
  • 3 sprigs rosemary
  • 2 bay leaves
  • Mashed Potatoes4 to 5 Yukon gold potatoes, peeled and quartered
  • 3 cups heavy cream
  • 4 oz unsalted butter
  • 6 roasted garlic cloves, pureed
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Mix together flour, chile powder, salt and pepper. Roll lamb shanks in this flour mixture. In a large roasting pan, heat oil; sear shanks. Add onions, celery, carrots and garlic; continue to sear. Add wine, broth, thyme, rosemary and bay leaves. Bring to a boil; reduce to a simmer and cover. Cook for 2-1/4 hours, turning shanks occasionally, until meat is very tender. Pull meat from the bone; continue to simmer over low heat until stew thickens slightly. Strain the sauce from the bottom of the pan and reduce by half. Add back; cool.
  • Put lamb stew in oven safe bowl; top with warm mashed potatoes. Bake at 375°F for approximately 15 minutes, until stew bubbles over the side and potatoes are golden brown.
  • While the lamb is roasting make the potatoes. In a small pot, boil potatoes until fork slides out of potatoes easily. While potatoes are boiling, in a separate pan, heat cream and butter until hot. Do not boil. Drain water from potatoes; place potatoes in mixer with paddle attachment. Add 1 cup cream mixture; mix until blended. Slowly add remaining cream while mixer is on medium speed. Add salt and pepper to taste.
