I used onions and shallots instead of leeks, and it worked beautifully! Great flavored lamb shanks, that had our taste buds saying "hello!" I served with mushroom brown rice and garlic string beans. So delicious!

Great shank. I used onion because I didn't have leeks, but this was a wonderful meal. The shank was fork tender and the sauce was delicious. Thanks for sharing this nice keeper, Pat.
