This recipe has been on the menu for decades. I started working for Bernard Schreiner as a busboy 29 years ago, and baked lamb shanks were a favorite then, too. The recipe was passed down from his mother. We feature comfort foods made from scratch.—Dale Grantman, Des Moines, Iowa


  • 4 lamb shanks (14 to 16 ounces each)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 4 cups beef broth
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped onion
  • 2 teaspoons dried rosemary, crushed
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground mustard
  • Mint jelly, optional


  1. Place the lamb shanks in an ungreased 13-in. x 9-in. baking pan. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake, uncovered, at 400° for 30 minutes. Remove from the oven and reduce heat to 350°. Add broth to the pan. Combine onion, rosemary, garlic powder and mustard; sprinkle over lamb. Cover tightly and bake for 2-1/2 to 3 hours or until very tender. If desired, make gravy from pan drippings. Serve lamb with gravy and mint jelly if desired.
