Ready in 2 hours 30 minutes
The best suited accompaniment of this dish is mashed potato since frozen lambs come in packet, feel free to braise them all, leftovers can be perfect addition to shepherd's pie or tucked into wrap with crisp green salad.
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celcius or 350 Farenheit.
Pat lamb shanks dry with paper towels, then sprinkle on both sides with salt and pepper.
Heat oil in a dutch oven over medium high heat. Cook lamb shanks for 10-12 minutes turning occasionally until brown on all sides. Remove on a large plate.
Reduce heat to medium and add onion to fat remaining in the pot. Cook, stirring for 4-6 minutes until onion is golden brown. Add cinnamon and cook for 30 seconds or until fragrant.
Stir in stock, honey, Worcestershire sauce, garlic and bay leaves, bring to boil over high heat, stirring to scrape up brown bits from bottom of pot.
Return lamb shanks to pot, cover tightly and shift to oven, cook for 1 and a half (1.5) hours or till lamb is very tender, turning them over, halfway through the cooking time.
Remove to warm plate, cover and keep warm, with a slotted spoon remove the garlic and set aside, discard bay leaves. when garlic is cool enough to handle, squeeze garlic from skin and mash smoothly, whisk garlic into cooking juices and bring to boil over medium high heat. Boil for 2-3 minutes until juices have reduced and thickened slightly. Taste and add more salt or pepper if necessary.
Place on 2 warm plates, spoon cooking juices over them and sprinkle with parsley.

Labood 1y agoThis is now my family's favorite way to have lamb. I use beef stock and the sauce is nice and rich. Delicious.
annadunn 2y agoI'd love to make this but can you please change ml to teaspoon or tablespoons...
chiefrice1 2y agoMy wife Birthday was this month and I like to cook homemade dinnrrs for her. I must say these lamb chops were a pure delight. The cinnamon and honey was a great combination. I did use chicken broth instead I used Goya seasoning as a broth. I would definitely make this dish again.

Pohorelic 3y agoAmazing flavour! I used a heavy enameled cast iron pot to braise the shanks on the stove top and the onions caramelized into a wonderful sauce that with the sweet and cinnamon flavour are very unique and delicious.
mels2011 3y agoBrilliant flavor! I also threw in a packet of French onion soup mix, and cooked in the slow cooker after browning in the electric frypan. Will definitely use this recipe again!
