2. Next, you may scatter the onion and the green pepper all over the top.

3. Now, using a medium-size bowl or any container, just combine the tomato sauce, garlic, wine, salt, oregano, sugar, cinnamon, and rosemary. After mixing them all in, pour over the meat.

4. Cook the lamb shanks over a low fire for about 8 hours.

5. After 8 hours, you can now remove the lamb onto a platter and then keep the meat warm.

6. You must get rid off any excess fat from juices.

7. Using some plain flour or corn flour mixed in water, you may thicken the sauce.

8. You may now put the lamb shanks onto a plate.
