Slow-Roasted Lamb Shanks

Yes, you read right, Slow-Roasted Lamb Shanks and not slow-cooked!

Slow-cooking a lamb shank is delicious but I bet you didn’t know they roast beautifully too.

You know when you cook a leg of lamb and it still has the shank bone attached and it goes all sticky and dark and delicious?  Well, that is basically what we are doing here.

Now I cooked these babies in an oven bag to start with to keep them moist and succulent inside but you can also just throw them in a roasting dish, cover with foil and follow exactly the same recipe.

The other benefit of cooking these in an oven bag is the juices that pool in the bottom of the bag.
