Schreiner's Baked Lamb Shanks
This recipe has been on the menu for decades. I started working for Bernard Schreiner as a busboy 29 years ago, and baked lamb shanks were a favorite then, too. The recipe was passed down from his mother. We feature comfort foods made from scratch.—Dale Grantman, Des Moines, Iowa
