Ingredients

Olive oil

2 large lamb foreshanks 

4 cups pinto beans, canned or partially cooked 

4 cups white beans, canned or partially cooked 

4 cups chicken stock 

1/2 cup tea, such as Big Earl's Hillbilly Tea 

2 tablespoons salt 

1 teaspoon ground black pepper 

4 cloves garlic, minced 

4 Roma tomatoes, diced 

Directions

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Heat some olive oil over medium-high heat in a large skillet. Sear the lamb shanks until golden brown on each side, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Remove from the skillet and set aside. Stir together the beans, stock, tea, salt, pepper, garlic and tomatoes in a casserole dish. Lay the lamb shanks on top and sink them down into the beans until two-thirds submerged.
  3. Braise, uncovered, until the lamb is falling off the bone, 4 hours. Serve family-style with some corn pone or crusty bread!
