2 tablespoons white flour (all purpose)
Preheat oven to 350° . In a shallow dish, combine flour, salt and pepper. Roll lamb pieces in the flour; shake off excess. Heat ½ tablespoon of the oil in a Dutch oven or heavy oven-proof skillet over medium high heat. In two batches, brown the lamb on all sides, about 8 to 10 minutes per batch, using the remaining ½ tablespoon oil for the second batch.
Remove the lamb to a bowl and set aside. Reduce the heat to medium, add onions, carrots and celery to the pan and cook, stirring, until softened, 3 to 5 minutes. Add garlic and cook until aromatic, about 30 seconds. Stir in tomato sauce, wine or vermouth, basil, thyme and bay leaf. Add the reserved lamb and return to a simmer.
Cover and bake for about 1 ½ hours, or until the lamb is tender, turning the meat once after 45 minutes. Discard the bay leaf; taste and adjust seasonings (The recipe can be prepared ahead. Cover and refrigerate for up to 2 days or freeze for up to 6 months. Thaw, if necessary, and heat on the stovetop or in a 350° oven for about 30 minutes before serving).
Sprinkle with parsley and serve.
