Lamb shanks are slowly simmered with fresh rosemary, garlic, tomatoes and red wine. Warming and delicious when served with polenta or roasted garlic mashed potatoes, as you'll need something to soak up the wonderful sauce that results. A fantastic dish for guests, as all the prep work is done at the beginning, and then you just have to wait.
Altered ingredient amounts. i used chicken stock granules + the beef stock, 1/2 the wine quantity n total cooking time was about 1hr 30mins. - 31 May 2009
Used different ingredients. I'm never sure about beef stock with lamb, so I used Marigold vegetable stock. I also added about five stalks of chopped celery (just because I had some in the fridge that I wanted to use up). - 16 Oct 2010
Cooked this on Wednsday and ate it on Thursday. I was cooking 4 shanks so I reduced some the ingredients and I used vegetable stock instead of beef stock. Also added some celery I had in the fridge. I served it with rice. I'd never cooked lamb shanks before and this was an easy recipe to follow. The result was absolutely delicious. Thank you to S Hodge. - 16 Oct 2010
