2 ta­ble­spoons ex­tra vir­gin olive oil

4 x 350g lamb shanks, trimmed

1 onion, finely chopped

4 cloves gar­lic, thinly sliced

6 sprigs thyme

2 sprigs rose­mary

STEP 3 Re­turn the lamb shanks to the pan, cover with a lid and cook in the oven, turn­ing half­way, for 1½ hours. Re­move the lid and cook, un­cov­ered, for a fur­ther 20 min­utes or un­til golden.
