About this recipe: This is simply gorgeous because it's so comforting! Preparation is easy, too! The lamb shanks are slow-cooked in a generous amount of red wine. This is best served with the sauce juices poured over mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, risotto or even soft polenta.
This was a delicious dish. The lamb melted off the bone and the flavour was really nice. Next time I would crush the garlic to give it more flavour as leaving it unpeeled didnt get a lot of flavour out. Also, I would put big chunks of carrots in so it is more substantial. Apart from that, would definitely make again. Served it with mash. - 16 Dec 2011
This is so similar to my own recipe it's spooky. Admittedly, the recipe almost writes itself, but still... A classic that only needs mustard mashed potatoes as an accompanyment. - 17 Aug 2008
Loved it - had no carrots or garlic or fresh herbs so used parsnips, red peppers for colour and a dried greek herb mix containing most of the herbs needed parsley, mint etc.Served with sweet potato mash. As good as any gastro pub has served up. Needed the same amount of stock for just 2 shanks so beware if cooking 4. Roll on winter. Preparation time spot on. Can't go wrong. House smells divine. - 03 Nov 2011
