Reviews for Braised Lamb Shanks
"Good recipe! I omitted the celery and carrots. I needed to double the recipe due to the number of lamb shanks I had. I felt the sauce was a little too thin. Perhaps that is because I doubled the recipe. Anyway, every one enjoyed this and I Will definitely use this recipe again. Thanks for the good recipe."
