Roasted Lamb Shank

1 shank per person
1/4 cup olive oil

Preheat oven to 350°. Place enough shanks in large roaster pan to fill pan. (I use 8 in the largest roasting pan.) Cover pan with foil or the roaster pan lid. Place pan in oven and roast for two hours. At this point, turn shanks and replace in oven covered for another 1/2 to 1 hour. Remove from oven and check for doneness. Raise oven to 450° and place back in oven for another 1/2 to 1 hour uncovered. Removed from oven and allow to cool before removing meat from bones. You can reserve meat for another dish or make a sauce with the pan drippings and serve immediately.
