DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 140 - 150oc (the lower the temperature and the longer you cook the Lamb the more tender it will be).
  • In a large saucepan pour enough olive oil to cover the base of the pan. On a low heat, add the finely chopped onion and garlic and sweat for a few minutes
  • Once the onions are softened add the tinned tomatos, passata, red wine, vinegar,bay leaves, herbs, spices, and salt and pepper and turn up the heat to medium.
  • Once sauce is bubbling, add the honey. Turn heat down and leave to simmer uncovered.
  • Whilst the sauce is simmering, brown the Lamb shanks on all sides in a dry frying pan on a high heat.
  • Place the Lamb in a large casserole dish and pour the sauce over.
  • Cover the casserole dish and place into the oven for 2 1/2 - 3 hours, turning Lamb every 30 - 40 minutes.
  • Once the meat is falling off the bone, remove the Lamb from the dish and cut into chunks (the Lamb will be so tender you could do this with a spoon).
  • Return the Lamb to the dish and remove bay leaves. Cook for a further 20 - 30 minutes.
  • Crumble feta over the Lamb to serve.
  • YUMMY! ;-).
