Braised Lamb Shanks

This dish is ridiculously easy to make, as the oven does most of the work! Braising turns this tough and often overlooked cut into the most tender, flavorful creation. Serve with mashed potatoes, buttered noodles, or mashed cauliflower. This dish can also be made in a crock pot.
