  2. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Fry the shanks in turn until all sides are evenly browned. 
  3. Place the lamb shanks and all the other ingredients into a casserole dish and put it in the oven. Cook until the meat is tender. Serve with mashed potatoes with steamed kale mixed in.
