    This one is sexy and loving just because it takes time, care and love .... just what we are celebrating ... call it slow passion if you like Wink

    2 Karoo Lamb Shanks
    Sea Salt and Freshly Ground Pepper
    1 Onion Chopped
    2 Large Carrots Chopped
    2 Cloves Garlic, crushed
    500ml Red Wine
    150g Tomato Puree
    4 Sprigs Fresh Rosemary
    2 Teaspoons Mixed Spice
    1 Cup Fresh Mint Leaves, Finely Chopped
    3 Tablespoons Brown Sugar

    Season the shanks and brown in a large heavy bottomed pot
    Remove and set aside
    In the same pot, sauté the onions, carrots and garlic until golden brown (about 10 minutes)
    Return the Shanks to the pot and ½ fill with red wine (do not cover completely)
    Add tomato puree, rosemary, mixed spice, mint and sugar
    Bring to the boil, reduce heat to medium-low
    Cover and simmer until meat is tender and beginning to fall off the bone (about 3 – 3.5 hours)
    Remove the lid and simmer for 20 minutes
    Take the shanks out of the pot, put on a platter
    Reduce the remaining juices in the pot until thickened about 15 minutes.
    Adjust seasoning, spoon over shanks and serve
