* Both my 8 month old and my 4yr old love this recipe! If there is any left over I simply freeze in ice cube trays and defrost for my baby 1 - 2 cubes at a time.
* If desired a lamb forequarter chop could be used in place of the shank, however, the lamb shank does give this dish it's wonderful flavour!
