After watching my husband dribbling all over the telly while watching Jamie Oliver create this recipe on Jamie’s Great Britain programme earlier in the series, I knew I’d be making this for our Sunday lunch one weekend!
Here’s how the recipe should look when finished:
Here’s the link to the recipe and what Jamie says about it:
“People absolutely love lamb shanks. You cook them until they’re just falling apart and they develop the most amazing flavours. This recipe is all about investing in dark sticky sauce and tender meat. We’re spoiled for choice when it comes to interesting ales, and adding a good dark ale or even Guinness to the onions creates the most brilliant depth of flavour. The sauce here makes enough for ten lamb shanks, so if you want to make this recipe serve more people, just plop a few more shanks into the pan and top up with a little more stock if need be. Whatever you do, do NOT skip the mint oil or spring onions. It’s like switching on a light, and just that simple little touch makes the whole dish sing”
I’m off to buy the ingredients tonight, so I’ll let you know how it turns out when I cook it up!
