I made this tonight for the two of us. I used ALL the liquid, three small sprigs of rosemary, two teaspoons of dried oregano (2 tablespoons would be a huge amount) and 4 cloves of garlic. In my opinion, that would be more than enough seasoning even with 8 shanks. Once the foil came off, the liquid almost reduced to nothing-it would have been hard to get enough to serve over the full amount of shanks. Never mind, this was absolutely delcious and we both loved it thanks Pat.
