Lamb shanks etc

| | Comments (2)
Had another peaceful kind of a day at home.  Bit more tidying (sorted out and tidied some crap downstairs), lots of Olympic-ing (I'm soo gonna have wii arm tomorrow), and cooking of dinner.  

Thought I'd give these slow-cooked lamb shanks a try.  Had to make a dash to the bottle-o this morning tho when I realised that we didn't actually have any red wine in the house!!  So marinated a couple of lamb shanks in red wine, garlic and parsley.  Quickly fried/deglazed, and added half an onion, more garlic, paprika (replacing chilli powder), some bay leaves (which I removed ;) ), worscestershire sauce, more red wine, little bit of stock and a tin of chopped tomatoes.  Chucked them in the oven after our lunch (of nommm La Famiglia garlic bread). And waited all afternoon in anticipation!  

The end result was meat that literally disintegrated (yes, there was a warning this might happen! ;) ).  Epic nommm!  For my tastes just slightly too tomato-ey, but Stu said it could have done with some more tomato paste to strengthen it up a bit.  So I guess it worked out just fine :)

I'm kicking myself I didn't double the dosage, so to speak, to get leftovers :)
