Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  In a large heavy covered casserole, stir all ingredients together in order given.  Cover tightly; bake 45 minutes.  Turn lamb, cook 45 minutes more.  Serve (We served this on spinach that had been sautéed with garlic & sesame seeds & soy sauce.  It was delicious!  We didn’t have 6 lbs of shanks, maybe 3 pounds’ worth, and used only about 4 cups of broth in all.)
