“I'm a HUGE Triple D (Diner's, Drive-In's & Dive's) fan!!! After seeing several episodes with places that serve lamb shanks (& my mouth watering), I decided to try my hand at it. I looked at several recipes on the Zaar, but I DO NOT like cooking with wine. IMO wine ruins the taste of most food instead of enhancing it, but to each his own. I came up with this & it turned out pretty tasty...hope you like it, too!!! I used a heavy covered cast iron dutch oven, but you can use whatever you have.”
