Lamb Shanks?? Need to use an oven recipe-NO TOMATO

shaddowqueen, May 14, 5:21am
Been looking at a few places on the net, cant seem to find a recipe without tomato. It cant be that hard can it? I just want to slow roast them in the oven, so they have a nice gravy sauce as well, but still fall off the bone. Red wine or something maybe....any ideas?

Here it is ... and thanks illusion - your recipe is supurb!!
Have to say I used Smoke & Spiced Solar Salt instead of plain salt and Barkers Apple & Mint Jelly instead of mint sauce.

Easy way - FORGET the crockpot.
Lay out large sheet of tinfoil. Lay on top a sheet of baking paper. Lay shanks on top. Sprinkle with salt and pepper, drizzle with mint sauce. Wrap baking paper, then tinfoil into parcels (one inside the other). Place in a 160 degree oven for 3 to 4 hours. Remove, open parcel, serve. Meat will be tender, gelatinous and falling off the bone. AND NO MESS ;) illusion_

Place all glaze ingredients in a bowl and mix well... Line a roasting pan with foil leaving a generous overhang. Place the lamb shanks in pan..
Brush generously with the glaze. Fold over and seal foil so that shanks are completely enclosed.... Reserve remaining glaze

Yum - did this last night and was exactly like you and not wanting the tomato thing. Brown shanks and put into casserole with 100mls port and 1/4 cup of red wine per shank. Add finely chopped carrot, a couple of red onions, 1Tlbspn brown sugar, loads rosemary and a whole head of garlic chopped. Cook them for absolutely ages at 150 deg. I reduced the sauce down to half in a saucepan and then wizzed it until smooth. Divine. Rich dark and the best ever. I also made kumara mash with a tonne of wasabi in it.
