Delicious! I made the full recipe using two large shanks so cooked for three hours which was so tender I ate mine using a fork. The excess curry (from just making two serves) was great served over mashed potato.
Yummy Pat! I sprayed my pan with spray oil then browned my shanks, then cooked my onion in athe bit of fat that rendered out of them. I added a big spoon of garlic and after tasting my curry paste, used water instead of stock. We are salt lovers, but stock would have made the dish WAY too salty, so I suggest a quick sampling of the paste first. I love shanks and this one was an exceptionally good recipe for so very little effort.
Fall off the bone tender and SO flavorful!! Will make again. Thanks.
