Top Review by JustJanS

These were very good thanks. They needed all of 2 hours in the oven to get to the falling-off-the-bone stage I like my shanks at. A small problem-thyme is mentioned in method, but not in ingredients. Loved the lemon and parsley to finish. We ate these over evewitch's Dill-sour Cream Mashed Potatoes for a hearty meal last night.
