Cooks in: 150 mins Prep time: 25
Preheat the oven to 170c.
Place a heavy based casserole over a moderatley high heat. Rub some olive oil over the lamb and season with salt and pepper. Sear for 8 minutes or until browned all over. Remove the shanks and set aside.
Place the shallots in the pan and cook for 4 minutes or until coloured. Add the wine, stock, vinegar and rosemary along with the lamb. Bring up to the boil, cover and place in the oven for 2 hours or until very tender. Remove the lid and cook for a further 30 minutes. Turn them over one or twice if they are colouring too much.
Use a spoon to skim off any fat that has risen to the surface and reduce the sauce over a high heat if necessary. Serve with olive oil mash and steamed brocollini.
The lamb shanks can be booked the day before and gently heated to serve.
You can substitute the mashed potato with some soft polenta.
