Once upon a time in the quaint countryside of Tuscany, there lived a renowned chef named Nonna Maria. She was famous far and wide for her exquisite culinary creations, crafted with love and passed down through generations.
One chilly autumn evening, as the golden leaves danced in the breeze and the aroma of harvest filled the air, Nonna Maria found herself inspired to create a hearty and comforting dish that would warm the souls of all who tasted it. And thus, her Completely Keto Slow Cooked Lamb Shanks were born.
Nonna Maria began by selecting the finest lamb shanks from her trusted local butcher, ensuring they were of the highest quality. With a sprinkle of almond flour to add a touch of richness, she lovingly coated the shanks before gently searing them to perfection in fragrant olive oil.
Next, she sautéed diced celery until it was tender and aromatic, creating a flavorful base for her sauce. With a dollop of sugar-free tomato paste, a dash of cumin, and a sprinkle of Italian seasoning, Nonna Maria worked her culinary magic, infusing the sauce with layers of depth and complexity.
But the secret ingredient, she knew, was the red wine – a generous pour that added a touch of elegance and richness to the dish. As the lamb shanks simmered slowly in the savory sauce, the flavors melded together, creating a symphony of taste that was nothing short of divine.
Hours passed as the tantalizing aroma filled Nonna Maria’s cozy kitchen, drawing neighbors and passersby to her doorstep with eager anticipation. When the lamb shanks were finally ready, tender and falling off the bone, Nonna Maria proudly presented her masterpiece to her delighted guests.
With each succulent bite, they were transported to a realm of culinary bliss, where the cares of the world melted away in the warmth of Nonna Maria’s kitchen. And as they savored the last delicious morsels, they knew they had experienced something truly magical – a taste of Nonna Maria’s love, skill, and the timeless traditions of Italian cuisine.

Set the oven to 250 degrees and cover the lamb in almond flour.
Heat up oil on high in a pan. Once oil is fully heated, put the lamb shanks in and roast for 3 minutes on each side. Add all the rest of the ingredients except the liquid.
Then add the water and red wine together. The shanks should still be sticking out on top.
Cover everything and bake for 90 minutes. Then flip the shanks and bake for another 90 minutes.
