Doesn't That Look Good?

I adore shanks, either veal or lamb. It has been a while since I have made them for a weekend dinner.

I got to thinking about shanks after looking at the braised anise-ginger lamb shank right here at That looks absolutely divine. This dish/photo comes courtesy of the food blogger at TasteWithTheEyes.

I will be having friends over for dinner in a couple of weekends, and I am definitely leaning toward shanks (either lamb or veal) as a main course. This recipe looks good. And so does this recipe from Epicurious -- its ingredients include both lemon peel and pancetta.
Winter is a perfect time for comfort food like veal or lamb shanks.
