Instructions 1. Heat oil in large heavy based pan and brown lamb shanks. Remove from pan. 2. Next place vegetables in pan and cook until soft. Add in spices and cook for one minute. 3. Add wine to pan and de-glaze for 1 min. 4. Add back lamb shanks and remaining ingredients. 5. Place in oven for 2-3 hours on 150 degrees. The meat should fall off the bone. OMG YUM!
