In winter there's nothing better than a simple-to-cook, succulent and fall-off-
the-bone dish of homemade lamb shanks. This dish is not only tasty and
terrific but also versatile. If you cook an excess amount, the meat and sauce
are simply brilliant in a risotto or pasta dish for another night.
Have a go and stick another feather in your culinary cap! Enjoy.
If you have any cooking questions, suggestions or stories, please email them
