    Minxkat1's Note:

    This made the house smell heavenly, a perfect cool weather dish. The meat literally falls off the bones. Mashed potatoes as an accompaniment is a must. The total cooking time is actually 2 hours 15 minutes, adding in the time to thicken the sauce the total cooking time is 2 1/2 hours.

      I was making roast lamb often, but the price went up, so I tried shanks, using this recipe. It's SOO delicious, my husband prefers it to the roast! Before, we only got lamb shanks when we'd ocassionally go to a Greek restaurant, but now I can make them proudly at home, ty!

      This was great! I was out of beef stock and only had a small can of cream of celery soup so I used that 1:1 with water and then used the same amount required as the beef stock. I only made three shanks and cooked it for 1 hour and 40 min and it was perfect!
