    These are my mother's world famous lamb shanks. They are absolutely delicious, the meat literally falls off the bone. Serve with vegetables and mashed potatoes. Wonderful with Merlot! It just sets off the flavours. Fabulous to serve for a dinner party as you can socialise and get everything ready because they cook for so long.

      Wow oh wow,is this ever good! So simple to make with so few ingredients and yet so full of flavour. Halfway through cooking my mouth was watering, the house smelled divine. I served these with creamy mashed potatoes, steamed carrots and baby peas..spooned the jus over the meat and potatoes. Absolutely wonderful, thanks for sharing a great recipe.
