Can't go wrong with lamb shanks! This is the perfect recipe for a dinner party because all the preparation is done in advance, leaving only the slow braising.
Great recipe. I used dried herbs instead of fresh (including a bay leaf) and also added some celery. After browning the lamb & vegetables I transferred it to the oven for 3 hours rather than cooking it on the stove top. The lamb was very tender and fell right off the bone. - 03 Oct 2008
Altered ingredient amounts. I tend to use whatever vegies I have at home. Zuchinni, potato, pumpkin etc.... Sometimes I use barley or split peas to fill it out a bit. - 16 Apr 2010
This is an ideal recipe to also add pumpkin or sweet potato or potato too. I will try that next itme. I also just put the rosemary in without chopping up. Was fine. - 04 Jul 2010
