It’s pretty mind blowing how easy it is to make this Braised Lamb Shank in the pressure cooker. It’s so tender and the perfect meal to wow an audience when entertaining or wow your family as a comforting meal.


4 Australian Lamb Shanks

2tbs Olive Oil

1 White Onion, chopped

2c Baby Carrots

1/2c Chopped Celery

3tsp Minced Garlic

8oz Tomato Sauce

3 Springs of Rosemary

3 Sprigs of Thyme

4 Bay Leaves

4tsp Kosher Salt, divided

2tsp Black Pepper

2c Masala or Red Wine

2c Beef or Vegetable Broth


  1. Add olive oil to your pressure cooker.

  2. Place your pressure cooker on sauté mode.

  3. Add your lamb shank to the pressure cooker and sear all the way around, about 5 minutes. (I like to sear 2 shanks at a time)

  4. After searing, sit your Australian Lamb Shanks to the side.

  5. To your pot, add onion, carrots, and celery. Saute until your onions are translucent. 

  6. Stir in your garlic and tomato sauce.

  7. Stir in wine, broth, herbs, and spices.

  8. Place your Australian Lamb Shank back into the pot and seal with your lid.
  9. Seal your vent, and place on pressure cooker mode for 50 minutes.

  10. Carefully open the vent, and let all of the pressure release.

  11. Serve over polenta or mashed potatoes.
