I agree that this is a great recipe for non-lamb lovers. It made a believer out of me. I tweaked it a little since I didn't have some of the ingredients but had to make it for my husbands birthday meal since he loves lamb. I only added 1/4 cup of vinegar but probably could have omitted it altogether since I also added capers! Also I only had a half a yellow onion so I added green onions with it. Left out the lemon completely and spread minced garlic over the shanks, and added 2 more cloves of roughly chopped garlic to sauce. Used a good sweet red Zin and ONE 14oz. can of stewed Italian tomatoes I chopped in smaller pieces, which was plenty. Sprinkled dry basil on top and would leave out the oil next time as there was plenty of fat from the lamb. I also added some peeled potato pieces to thicken and absorb the sauce during cooking. After dinner, I couldn't stop picking at it! The sauce was so tasty. Next time I will add mushrooms too. It smelled like lamb, but didn't taste like it. I will make this again for my husband and will enjoy it with him.
