I decided to cook a surprise dinner for my mother-in-law's birthday. She had been craving the lamb shanks from Elephant Bar, so lamb shanks it would be! Unless you want the bone whole for presentation, a tip when buying your meat is to ask the butcher to crack the bone. That will add more flavor to your sauce.
This was my first experience cooking lamb, but the recipe was super easy! You MUST be patient & let the sauce reduce...that is key. If you need to speed it up you can turn up the fire, but you have watch carefully & stir to prevent burning. You will see the difference as it thickens. I suggest if not all, use more beef broth than chicken for a richer taste. If you prefer a gravy, puree the reduction then strain it. Best served with mashed potatoes & your choice of veggies. I also suggest something lemony for dessert...I made a lemon-raspberry cheesecake. My Husband & Ma-in-law loved it!
