The recipe, as written, requires a pressure cooker. I'm sure that this would be fine using a dutch oven or such. It would need a lot more time with my best estimate being 3-4 hrs.

Step-By-Step

1Pat lamb shanks dry and season with 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper each.

Heat oil in pressure cooker over medium-high heat until it shimmers, then brown shanks well, 1 at a time, transferring to a plate.

2Add onion, carrots, celery, and garlic to pressure cooker and sauté until golden brown, about 6 minutes.

Add tomatoes with juice and rosemary and cook, stirring, 1 minute.

Stir in beans, water, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper.

3Return lamb shanks to pressure cooker and bring to a boil.
Seal lid and cook at high pressure according to manufacturer’s instructions, 30 minutes.

4Put pressure cooker in sink (do not remove lid) and run cold water over lid until pressure goes down completely.

Remove lid and discard rosemary, then transfer shanks to a cutting board and coarsely shred meat.
