1/8 tsp ground sage
1/8 tsp dried thyme
1/8 tsp dried rosemary
1 medium onion, diced
4 cloves of garlic, smashed/chopped
1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup red wine
2 cups Manischewitz Beef Broth

Roasted Veggies:
1 turnip, cut in sticks
1 large red beet, cut in rounds
1 large carrot, cut in rounds
1/2 rutabaga, cut in sticks
1 tsp kosher salt
1/8 tsp black pepper
1/4 Tbsp avocado oil
2 Tbsp minced garlic
1/8 tsp dried rosemary

1/4 cup cooked basmati rice

1/2 cup frozen lima beans
1/4 cup frozen peas

PREPARATION:

Lamb:
1. Heat extra virgin olive oil in skillet on medium-high heat.
2. Braise lamb shank for 2-3 minutes on each side (in skillet).
3. Place on lined cookie sheet under a high broiler for 2 minutes on each side. Remove and let cool.
4. In the same skillet, on medium heat, add onion and garlic and sauté for 3-5 minutes until the onions start to turn brown.
5. Lower heat to a low setting. Add seasonings, broth and wine. Let cook/simmer covered for 45 minutes.

Roasted Root Vegetables:
1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
2. In a large mixing bowl, place all ingredients and toss well.
3. Pour vegetables onto a large lined greased cookie sheet. Bake for 10 minutes. Rotate and mix. Bake an additional 10-12 minutes. Remove and let cool.

Rice:
1. Place 1/2 cup basmati rice, 3/4 cup water, 2 tsp oil, 1/4 tsp salt, and 1/4 tsp granulated garlic powder into a rice cooker and set aside. When it is finished, remove from heat and let cool, covered, for 10 minutes.

Steamed Beans:
1. Take 1/2 cup frozen lima beans and 1/4 cup frozen peas and steam. An easy shortcut is to put them in a microwave-safe bowl with 1/4 cup water. Cover the bowl tightly with plastic wrap. Place in microwave on high power for 3 minutes. Remove and serve.
