My husband and I absolutely loved this recipe. I doubled the amount of sauce due to the size of my Lamb Shanks and added carrot. Turned out amazing

I tried this recipe for the first time and it was a big success. Will definitely be cooking it again. I did double the sauce amount as I had two large lamb shanks!
