Citrus-Braised Lamb Shanks

Lamb shanks meet a bright trio of winter citrus—lemon, lime and orange—in this dish. The rich braising liquid that results from the  slow cooking almost surpasses the lamb shanks themselves. If you want to stretch the recipe to serve six, shred the meat from the bones, divide among shallow bowls and serve over rice, orzo or polenta, with the reduced juices drizzled over each serving.
