    Leslie in Texas's Note:

    A wonderful blend of flavors- perfumes the whole house. Perfect for company, since it can be made the day before. Everyone raves about it! I've doubled and tripled the recipe with success. It's from a 1998 Bon Appetit and Baked Polenta With Garlic that I've posted goes well with this--spoon some of the veggies and sauce over the polenta. Wonderful !!

      This is restaurant quality...just incredible. I'll admit I had never cooked lamb shanks before, only chops, etc. and this was out of this world. Have made this several times now, always to rave reviews. Braising is such a great cooking method and yields very tender, flavorful results. Lamb lovers out've got to try this one! :-)

      Excellent recipe! I made this as directed, except for a longer cooking time while waiting for our company to arrive. The meat was tasty and was so soft it fell off the bone. I suspect the choice of wine would have an impact on the taste of this dish, even with the quantity of broth used. Haven't yet tried this with anything but Shiraz.
