Made this for Christmas dinner, it was wonderful. The sauce took a little time to thicken but was worth it.

This recipe is amazing. I am often underwhelmed by recipes but this has met my expectations and then some! I found the sauce to be a little sweet once I added the sugar, so I added a bit of balsamic vinaigrette which made it even better. I used bone in lamb shanks the first time and served with a chunky wild rice mix and green beans. Make plenty of sauce, because you are going to want extra.

Great recipe! I skipped the sugar (previous reviewer stated it was a little too sweet), tasted the sauce and decided it was perfect without the extra sugar! I substituted 1 tsp of cornstarch for the flour because there is less risk of lumping. We also decided to leave the onion and garlic in the sauce (note: I did chop the onion into a very small dice and almost minced the garlic because we weren't straining). Served with green beans as suggested. This is definitely a keeper!

Wonderful! Whole family loved it. Served it with roasted veggies and mashed potatoes, and some red wine for christmas eve dinner..... I will be doing this again! I had a 3 lb boneless leg so it di take a little longer in the oven to reach 130 ( about 30 mins) but that gave me the perfect amount of time to make the sauce and get other things finished up.

We had this for Christmas with rosemary and cracked black pepper popovers, roast potatoes and parsnips and steamed carrots and broccoli. It was really delicious and the sauce was lovely too. Easy to make and little effort or advance planning required so a good recipe for fairly short notice guests too. We were glad there were leftovers to enjoy again. Will definitely make this again.
