    This was delicious and was a hit with hubby who thought it was the best shank recipe he'd had - he's not a big fan of them, so that's a big wrap from him! Thanks for sharing with us.  -  16 May 2011  (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)


    This is so delicious. I tend to add my own vegies and it just worked. The wine really adds a strong flavour but the kids still devoured it.  -  08 Jun 2010  (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)
