Here are a bunch!
BBC Food - Recipes

Oh, sorry for the long url!! Hope it works properly. There is a way to turn these into a "tiny url"--maybe someone will do that.
Well, look there--it is a smart url and did it itself!!!

I just finished making some actually. I took a bottle of red wine, some shallots and garlic and reduced it by half. I browned the shanks (in a 425* oven for 20 minutes instead of individually in my enamel cast iron oven). Two onions sliced,3 cloves sliced garlic, and 2-3 carrots chunked and added to the wine concentrate. Add a 28 oz. can of diced tomatoes and the browned shanks. Crumple a piece of parchment paper and put it in contact with the top of the liquid and shanks. Cover with dutch oven top. Bake at 300* for 2 hours.

love them cooked with white beans ... like a very simple cassoulet.

roast for an hour first to brown them. THen in a deep covered casserole (ie Dutch or French Oven) saute onions and garlic, add several cans of white beans drained, cup dry white wine, cup or so brown stock, tblspn or so tomato paste, several thyme sprigs or tsp dried thyme, bay leaf. Should look juicey...will reduce and thicken as beans cook. 2 1/2 to 3 hrs at 325-350*.
(option to add slices of garlic sausage to the mix during the last hour. Keilbasa is good or Salscison. )
just delish! we like to pull the meat off the bones and serve neat. Others like to give person a shank and spoon of beans.

Serve with crusty bread, green salad, roasted asparagus. fantastic

Thanks robo. Love lamb shanks, usually braise, and cassoulet but never thought about putting a casserole together like that.

That is one I really have to try.

Toots, sorry I missed your post. Here is the recipe for Arni Yiouvetsi. For a more flavourful dish, you can add a few bay leaves and 1/4 cup red wine.

I made this recipie by Flay, it turned out awesome. The only thing I didn't do were the tomatoes.

The orzo was outstanding.
