    Cosmiccook's Note:

    I love this recipe because I can make it the day before, it uses traditional and easy to grow herbs fresh from the garden and the vegetables are not exotic. Everyone seems to have their own version of this dish, but I think mine is special. I make for Sunday when we have neighbours round for a bottle ( or two) of wine and a casual lunch, so I can cook it slowly the day before and reheat it on the day. Because of slow cooking the vegetables melt and create a wonderful sauce. The meat falls off the bones. Keep it topped up with liquid while slow cooking. A real favourite on a winters day.

      Loved it! I used 3 lamb shanks so, I halved the recipe. But when it came to the wine I forgot and added the full amount..oops! But it turned out great! I didn't have mint so I put mint jelly over the shanks. Also left out paprika and bay leaves, because I couldn't find them either..(I just moved, still unpacking). However, everyone loved it. I will make this many times over.

      We really liked this and just happened to have a sale on the meat at the store. Lots of chopping, but well worth it. I cooked mine in my crockpot for about 6 hours while I was at work. Will try this again, But with a little more seasonings. Thanks for Posting

      I did this in the crockpot with two very meaty shanks. I have to admit that I did not follow the recipe exactly, because I had just written down the ingredients and not the directions. I browned the shanks, and placed them on the veggies in the crockpot - did not precook the veggies. I left the mint springs whole, and I have to say, I love the subtle taste of mint this way - not overpowering. I used a combination of high and low heat, so cannot swear to the time, but removed at a point where the meat was sliceable, which is how I prefer it. Really delicious. I also have a lot of liquid left, and I think it will make a fine base for a soup or gravy. The wine adds tremendous depth, I used a shiraz.
