      Very, very tasty lamb shanks, indeed! If this recipe is any indication of the food you serve at home -- can I come and live at your house? We all loved this divine dish. So easy to make and so delicious to eat. Our only change was to use 4 teaspoons of cornflour (cornstarch) to thicken the sauce. True comfort food. Thanks.

      I cook Lamb shanks often and have a ton of recipes both my own and others, this will definitely be going into my top recipes for ways to cook shanks. My hubby came out of his office, to ask "what is that wonderful smell." " What I'm hoping will be a wonderful dinner." Well it was wonderful, shanks came out juicy and tender, with so much flavour. The sauce was outstanding, all the ingredients go together so well and create such yummy flavours. I served mine with braised bok choy and wasabi mashed potato, as jan had said you served yours, great combination and one I will be making over and over. Thanks for sharing Jewelies
