    We love lamb in our family and this is a really super dish for the shanks. Cooking them really slowly like this means that by the time they are done they are incredibly tender and braking apart with a fork. Serve with seasonal vegetables.

    You can't have Irish stew for St Patrick's Day every year! If you feel like something a little different, but still fairly traditional, this hearty dish should fit the bill.

    This delightful Greek dish is a favourite in our household. In this dish, lamb shanks are slow cooked in stock and white wine with vegetables and herbs. I absolutely love using my homemade spice mix for this recipe.

    This lamb shank recipe was initially given to me as a family favourite from a mate at work. I've prepared it in a slow cooker and made it as easy as possible to prepare. It has a fantastic flavour and the meat just falls off the bone. I have made this in the oven as well and doubled the quantities for four people and it tasted just as good, only everybody went in for seconds and there were no leftovers.

    Saltmarsh lamb from the Holker Estate in Cumbria is naturally reared on the salt marshes and grazes on the local heather – the sweetness from the heather and saltiness from the water imparts delicious flavour to the meat.

    A delicious and special spring dish of lamb shanks in a rich prune sauce. The lamb is marinated for 24 hours prior to cooking making it sublime in flavour and very tender. The sauce adds an extra dimension with whispers of prunes and redcurrants.

    For those who love fall-from-the-bone lamb. Burgundy wine adds a special touch to the sauce that's served alongside.
