Lamb Shanks With Wine Sauce
225 mins (prep 45, cooking 180)
16 ingredients
4-6 servings
A deliciously robust and easy meat dish for company, which can easily be made two days ahead, as the flavour improves. Shanks (cut from the back leg part) are usually not as expensive as other parts. Weights and measures are NOT set in stone, and the final sauce must be adjusted to your taste. In our house this is a winner in all seasons! One shank per adult, at almost 1 lb each, sounds like a lot, but it contains a large bone and shrinks quite a bit during baking.
