She added diced onions and smushed garlic cloves, letting them caramelize to perfection before deglazing the pan with red wine, adding depth and richness to the sauce. Beef stock was poured over the lamb, transforming it into a braising liquid that would slowly cook the lamb to tender perfection.

As the evening approached, the Hamilton home was filled with laughter and the sound of clinking glasses, the air rich with the anticipation of the special meal. Eleanor served the braised lamb shanks on a bed of creamy cauliflower mash, a keto-friendly alternative to traditional mashed potatoes, and a side of roasted Brussels sprouts tossed in olive oil and sprinkled with Pink Himalayan Salt, adding a touch of brightness to the rich dish.

The dinner was more than a celebration of an enduring love; it was a moment that brought the family closer, each bite of the lamb shanks a testament to Eleanor’s thoughtful preparation and her desire to make the evening unforgettable.
