    Oolala's Note:

    From Supermarket Epicure cookbook. I haven't tried this yet. The recipe states: These slowly cooked lamb shanks are succulent and tender. The meat literally falls off the bone into a slightly sweet tomato sauce flavored with citrus slices, honey and cinnamon. This is dish is ideal for preparing ahead of time as the flavors improve with reheating. *Buy shanks that have some red in the bones. That lets you know they're fresh.

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
    2. 2
      In a large, heavy casserole, heat the oil until almost smoking over medium-high heat.
    3. 3
      Add the lamb shanks and brown on all sides, about 15 minutes. If you cannot fit the shanks without crowding, just do 2 at a time.
    4. 4
      Stir in the onion, adjust the heat down to medium, and cook until the onion is wilted and pale, about 4-5 minutes.
    5. 5
      Blend in the lemon and orange slices, tomatoes, stock, wine, honey, cinnamon stick, salt and pepper. Bring the liquid to a boil, stir to combine the ingredients, cover the casserole and transfer to the preheated oven.
    6. 6
      Bake the lamb shanks until they are very tender, about 1 hour and 45 minutes.
    7. 7
      Remove the cover and skim off the fat, return the pot to the oven, partially covered, for another 15 minutes, turning the shanks a couple of times during this time.
    8. 8
      Serve over cooked pasta or bulgur.

      Cooked the lamb shanks in the slow cooker and then 2 hours before we ate, I added all the flavourings. Yummo. Served it with peas, and grated onion, potato and carrot mixed together and then fried in small amounts. An all round easy meal and a winner with the kids.
