  • 4 anchovy fillets
  • 2 sprigs of rosemary

Are anchovies usually not your thing? Don’t worry, the savoury saltiness of anchovies always brings out the best flavours out of lamb.

  1. Chop the onion, carrot & garlic cloves finely in a food processor.
  2. Turn on oven to 160°c or gas mark 3.
  3. In a pot, add the olive oil & anchovies and mix them together on medium heat.
  4. Add the finely chopped onion, carrot & garlic and fry them for a couple of minutes.
  5. Add the tomato paste, rosemary & bay leaves and stir.
  6. Add the lamb stock and olives and bring to the boil.
  7. Add the lamb shanks and cook for 2-3 hours uncovered to allow the meat to brown.
  8. Turn the lamb shanks half way through cooking.
  9. Serve on a bed of mash, pour juices over, pour a glass of PepperBox Shiraz and enjoy!
