Tomato Lamb Shanks with Thyme

(Total Time: 30 MIN| Serves: 4)

Ingredients:
4 lamb shanks
1 large onion, finely chopped
2 celery stalks, chopped
4 garlic cloves, crushed
1 cup cherry tomatoes
2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
2 tbsp butter
1 tbsp fish sauce
2 cups beef broth

Spices:
1 tsp sea salt
1 tsp dried thyme
2 bay leaves

Directions:

  1. Plug in the instant pot and press the ‘’Sauté’’ button. Grease the inner pot with butter and heat up.
  2. Add the meat and brown on all sides for 2-3 minutes. You will probably have to do this in several batches.
  3. When done, remove from the pot and transfer to a large platter. Loosely cover with some aluminum foil and set aside.
  4. Add some more olive oil in the pot and add garlic, onions, and celery stalk. Stir well and cook for 4-5 minutes.
  5. Now, pour in the balsamic vinegar and continue to cook until the vinegar has completely evaporated.
  6. Finally, add the meat along with the remaining ingredients. Stir well and seal the lid. Set the steam release handle to the ‘’Sealing’’ position and press the ‘’Stew’’ button.
  7. When done, perform a quick pressure release and open the lid.
  8. Serve immediately.
