About this recipe: This is simply gorgeous because it's so comforting! Preparation is easy, too! The lamb shanks are slow-cooked in a generous amount of red wine. This is best served with the sauce juices poured over mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, risotto or even soft polenta.
This was a delicious dish. The lamb melted off the bone and the flavour was really nice. Next time I would crush the garlic to give it more flavour as leaving it unpeeled didnt get a lot of flavour out. Also, I would put big chunks of carrots in so it is more substantial. Apart from that, would definitely make again. Served it with mash. - 16 Dec 2011 (Review from Allrecipes UK | Ireland)
This is so similar to my own recipe it's spooky. Admittedly, the recipe almost writes itself, but still... A classic that only needs mustard mashed potatoes as an accompanyment. - 17 Aug 2008 (Review from Allrecipes UK | Ireland)
I enjoyed this recipes as it was very simple and healthy. I used a crockpot instead of my oven and I ended up with very tender vegetables and lamb. I would add a little more salt, but otherwise it was a great meal. - 20 Dec 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
