This makes enough delicious stew to feed an army. Lamb shanks seared and cooked with potatoes, carrots and onion.
Lamb is my favorite meat, however this was very bland. I will better use my lamb next time... - 13 Aug 2001 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
1st i'm a guy with limited cooking experience. I was tasked to make dinner for 8. This recipe saved the day. It was idiot proof and tasty. Everyone loved it but couldn't believe I made it. The meat was dripping off the bone. I Highly recommend this one. graham, Vancouver.BC - 10 Jul 2001 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
It must be personal preference because I didn't even get as far as to serve this. I followed the recipe exactly but it looked unappetizing (there was a thick white scum on the top of the broth, plus the lamb looked fatty and grey), and I disliked the smell too. Then I added some fresh thyme and rosemary, and I still didn't much like the taste. I'm going to keep the lamb broth (I spooned the ickiness off), and freeze it for something else. I hate giving bad reviews, but this really didn't work for us. So sorry.... But glad others enjoyed it! - 07 Jul 2005 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
