Tender and tasty, these lamb shanks are the perfect weekend meal. The Gremolata provides just the perfect amount of sourness for the sweet beans and savory lamb.
Most shank recipes are tied to very specific regions and cultures. Veal shank recipes are most common to Italy, Germany and France. Lamb shank recipes most often come from people who raise sheep for wool. The British and Commonwealth countries eat both mutton and lamb and the shanks are called "trotters." This recipe is a traditional Italian dish served with beans and gremolata.
Italy is one of those countries about which you probably have quite a number of preconceptions before you have put one foot into the country. A country of olive oil and mafia, pasta, wine and sunshine, roman ruins and renaissance palaces, Italy has a lot to offer its visitors. Although some of these images are appealing, it would be a shame if that was the only thing you come away with. Italy is certainly much more complex and interesting than that.
