Slow-roasted lamb shanks are such a great cold weather meal. They are full of flavor, and extremely easy to make. This recipe has only a few ingredients, but thanks to the long, slow cooking, it results in succulent, fork-tender lamb.
Preheat oven to 450? F (205? C).
Line an oven baking dish or pan with foil and place the lamb shanks within. Sprinkle olive oil over the flesh to coat so the spices stick (1-2 tbsps), and then sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Roast uncovered in the hot oven for 30 minutes. Remove the pan and turn oven down to 200? F (93? C).
Spread the Garlic, Rosemary and Thyme evenly around the Lamb shanks. Close the foil to seal in all juices and then wrap again in foil to ensure that it is well sealed.
Cook slowly for three (3) hours in the slow oven.
Scrape off the spices and serve. Strain the juice and pour over the meat. Serve with favourite potatoes and vegetables. Tender and delicious!
