  1. Step 1. Peel and chop onions to a fine dice. Heat Olive oil over medium heat in a large pot. Add the onions, with a sprinkle of sale and pepper and cook until just translucent. Season while stirring continuously.
  2. Step 2. Add the cranberries and marmalade, then add the tomato sauce, Worcestershire sauce and Guinness. Stir, then leave to gently simmer over a medium-low heat.
  3. Step 3. Meanwhile, heat another pot and add a few tablespoons of olive oil. Place lamb shanks in hot oil and allow to brown on all sides. Season, remove and set aside.
  4. Step 4. Once the lamb has some good colour, put in the Oregano and move them around in the pan to crisp it, but don’t let them burn.
  5. Step 5. Using tongs, move the shanks into the pan of onions, then pour in all their juices and the crispy Oregano.
  6. Step 6. Add the stock, put the lid on, turn the heat down to low and leave to slowly simmer for 3 hours, or until the meat falls off the bone easily, turning halfway for even cooking.
  7. Step 7. Once cooked, carefully move the shanks to a platter, making sure the meat stays intact.
  8. Step 8. Whiz or liquidize the gravy with a stick blender until smooth, then allow to thicken and reduce on the hob.
  9. Mint Sauce: Mash the mint leaves in a pestle and mortar with a good pinch of salt and the olive or rapeseed oil, then take to the table.
  10. Trimmings: Trim and finely slice the spring onions and toss on a plate with the remaining fresh mint leaves, a drizzle of cider vinegar and a pinch of salt.
  11. Scatter the vinegary spring onions and a few fresh mint leaves all over the top, and drizzle the mint oil all around the shanks. Delicious served with potato and celeriac mash – the plate will be clean before you know it.
  12. Garnish with spring onions and mint, serve and enjoy.
