    They don't come much easier than this; chop some veg, add lamb shanks and some liquid, and stick in the oven. Amazing, how such an easy recipe can be quite so delicious. I've had a couple of tough joints of lamb recently which shook my faith in lamb – not by this recipe, this recipe makes tender and lovely meat every time. Garlic mash to go along with it works very well (again, easy; mash some spuds and mash a couple of cloves of crushed garlic into them.) Easy doesn't always mean nasty - 12 May 2013
