      Oh definately reduce that sauce no argument there. I had 3 lamb shanks that weighed just uinder 2K so allowed a little extra time to cook and they were fall of the bone delicious with the sauce smothered over them. I kepted them warm in the oven (50C) in a covered dish with a couple of big dollops of the sauce to keep moist while I reduced the sauce (took about 8 minutes and served with Couscous With Savory Caramelized Onion by Izzy Knight made for a very nice meal with Basil Herbal Butter by Nyteglori made into a herbal bread, Jans recipe was made for Make My Recipe - Edition 14. UPDATED 4th February to correct spelling mistakes.

      These shanks are absolutely sensational. Our dinner guest said they were the best shanks he'd ever had and probably the best lamb dish he'd ever had. I made these as written, and worried a bit that the cinnamon might overpower, but it didn't. The balance of spices was perfect. I assumed that your ingredient of 1 tablespoon of cumin meant the Aussie measure of 4 teaspoons = 1 tablespoon. Served with mashed potatoes to soak up the gravy, steamed broccoli and a Middle Eastern pomegranate salad. This will be my go-to shank recipe forevermore. Wow, wow and wow! Thanks for posting. As an aside, I made this on Australia Day!

      Oh yum! I was a little worried because all our (rural) supermarket carried was one rather large shank. So I browned it a little longer (maybe 10 minutes), and simmered it a little longer (maybe 1 hr. 10 min.). Then, since I had all of that lovely sauce, I threw in some steamed green beans after it had reduced. Talk about delicious! And yes, *don't* forget the yogurt (Greek if you can get it)!

      I'd never had lamb shanks before and wanted to try them. This recipe was very easy for a first try and tasted pretty good but I've decided that shanks might be my least favorite cut of lamb (I love lamb any other time). I didn't have quite enough tomatoes but otherwise followed recipe as posted. Thanks for posting this so I could experiment :)
