it is so good

Turned out amazing - what I did do additionally is cut the layer of fat to just under the meat and rubbing the herb rub into the slits also gives the meat a delicious taste - also, the last 5 mi...

It turned out like I had in Muchen. I have had it twice and it is great. 01-01-2017 Made it again. I can't say enough how good these pork shanks taste. Make them just like the recipe. No changes...

great as given. I also used smoked hocks the next time I made it and it was not as good. So, fresh only.

Very Good.very tender & moist.Raw shanks are hard to find to begin with.

This turned out fantastic ! Looked just like the photo and the flavor was wonderful. I think it would be great with Lamb Shanks too. Will do this one again !
