This recipe is not difficult, just time consuming...and so worth it!!! I do recommend watching the tutorial. It really helps in simplifying the process.

Thank you, Chef John! These are probably the best lamb shanks we've ever made and eaten. A bit labor intensive, but worth every minute. My guy has an onion allergy, so we made this sans onion, but with a bit more garlic than the recipe calls, other than that followed the recipe exactly. This is definitely a keeper. Thank you again!

Excellent! You could taste every spice and had just alittle bite which, to me, was perfect! I added 1/2 c more tomato and a tad more brown sugar to extend the sauce as I like a lot. I made the full recipe for 2 lamb shanks and used the leftover sauce on chicken. YUM! Best I have had!!

Hands down the best Lamb Vindaloo we have eaten! I cooked two lamb shanks for hubbie and I yet kept all the other ingredients the same as we like it saucey. When I reached for the tamarind in the refrigerator, I couldn't find it. I ran to the Buzz for substitution ideas. It was suggested that I use molasses and lemon juice. So I added 1 tbsp. molasses and 1 tsp. lemon juice. When putting the lemon juice back in the fridge, I saw the tamarind on the door! I went ahead and added it too. Just a little comic relief! Served with brown basmati rice, spinach paneer and garlic naan. Fabulous! Thanks Chef John!

I tried this recipe today loved it! I have tried this meal at Indian restaurants before and had tried to make it based on my taste bud memories but it didn't come out the same as this recipe and that is because I was missing some of the major ingredients it was given in this recipe. I love spicy foods and this food is definitely one of them!

What a taste explosion! Before starting the meal, realize that it is time consuming. My wife does not understand why I make meals that are so involved but...this was well worth the effort.
