Can I use cornstarch instead of flour for dredging?

I have two gluten-free friends coming to a dinner party and I'm making Michael Ruhlman's braised lamb shanks with lemon confit. He calls for coating the shanks with flour before browning. Is cornstarch an acceptable substitute or should I just skip the dredging? I obviously don't want my friends to get ill.
