Prepare Ahead

Preheat the oven to 170 C/325 F/ gas 3.


  1. 1

    Trim the lamb shanks of any excess fat and toss in the flour.

  2. 2

    Heat the oil in a large flameproof casserole and sear the lamb shanks, browning on all sides. Remove the shanks from the casserole. Fry the onions in the casserole and cook for five minutes. Pour in the wine and allow it to reduce for a few minutes.

  3. 3

    Add the cherry tomatoes, stock, garlic, mint and half the thyme. Season well and bring to simmering point. Return the lamb to the casserole.

  4. 4

    Transfer the casserole to the oven. Cover and cook for 2 hours 30 minutes.

  5. 5

    Remove the casserole from the oven and stir in the remaining thyme. Mix the corn flour with enough water to form a paste. Stir into the casserole and return to the oven uncovered for a further 30 minutes.

  6. 6

    Meanwhile, boil the potatoes for 20 minutes or until soft. Drain and crush with a fork, folding in the parsley and butter. Serve the lamb with the juices and the crushed potatoes.
