From El Sobrante, California, Billie Moss says of this satisfying one-pot meal, "The meat becomes so tender and savory after simmering with the vegetables and herbs."
- 2 lamb shanks (about 2 pounds)
- 2 tablespoons canola oil
- 1 medium onion, diced

- 1/2 cup chopped celery
- 1/2 cup chopped carrots
- 1/2 teaspoon dried marjoram
