- 2 cloves garlic, smashed
- 2 teaspoons curry powder
- 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

I thought this was a great way to cook lamb shanks. I followed the recipe ingredients totally, and the only thing I changed was that after I browned them, I roasted them in the oven instead of on the stovetop. Also, I dipped them in flour before I browned them, and did not have to thicken the sauce when they were done. Thanks for the recipe. Joanie Biddulph.
This was a very good recipe for lamb. None of the "gamey" flavor was left over. Absolutely excellent. I think I might try this for other meats as well - maybe beef shanks or chicken. Thanks!
my husband loved this. I think it might be better suited to pork, duck or chicken, but it's certainly very tasty and very easy.
