These slow-cooked lamb shanks are a Kiwi family favorite dinner. This six-ingredient recipe is deceptively simple and sees fall-off-the-bone shanks braised in a rich, deeply flavoured red wine sauce, to deliver a restaurant-quality meal. You'll have the most comforting dinner you've had all year! Serve it over creamy mashed potato with a side of green beans, and some crusty bread to mop your bowl clean.

While braising the shanks might sound a little intimidating, honestly, it couldn't be easier. After a quick sear, the oven does all the work for you!
