Baked Lamb Shanks with Lentils and Garlic Mash

THIS recipe from Campbells is DELICIOUS!! It has definitely become a family favourite. If only shanks weren’t so damn expensive 😥

You need to give it a go. The lamb is sticky and lipsmackingly good!

I have altered it to our tastes a bit by using 2 cans of brown lentils, added more oregano, more brown sugar, plus added salt and pepper. Otherwise the recipe is the same on the website.

MAN that's GOOD!
