White Wine Braised Lamb Shanks

4 lamb shanks, dusted with salt and pepper
1 tbsps. olive oil
1 tbsp. butter
2 leeks, sliced
1 large carrot, chopped
2 garlic cloves, crushed
2 tbsps. plain flour
2 sprigs rosemary
2 tsp. picked thyme
2 cups chicken stock
2 cups white wine

Heat the olive oil in an oven proof pot and sear the shanks so that each side is browned. Remove to a plate and add the butter. Sauté the leek, carrot and garlic until tender. Add in the flour and cook stirring for 2 minutes. Return shanks to the pot and add in the stock, wine, rosemary and thyme. Bring to a boil making sure to scrape any residual flour mixture from the bottom. Pop a lid on the top, or cover with baking paper and alfoil, then bake in a 180°C oven for 2 hours or until tender, stirring occasionally. Season to taste and serve with mash.
