Roasted lamb shanks

This was one of the most amazing pieces of meat I've ever eaten.

Ingredients
2 lamb shanks
4 cloves garlic
1 tbsp olive oil
4 sprigs of rosemary
2 tsp thyme leaves
salt
black pepper

Preparation
Preheat oven to 450F. Line a pie pan with aluminum foil.

Toss the lamb shanks with 1 tbsp olive oil. Generously salt and pepper both sides of the shanks. Roast for 20 minutes in the preheated oven.

Reduce the temperature to 325F. Add the garlic cloves slightly crushed around the meat. Add 4 sprigs of rosemary and 1-2 tsp of fresh thyme leaves to the shanks. Encase tightly in foil.


Roast for 2 hours at 325F. Serve with mashed potatoes and mushroom sauce.
