This is a great “roast” if you’re single or home alone. The way I see it, why should the single ones miss out on a nice roast, frankly I will eat a roast to myself over a couple of days easy but not everyone wants to cook a huge joint just for themselves.
This dish is easier with an oven/casserole dish (ideally with a lid). Or you can use a regular dish and cover with foil.
Pre heat oven to 200
Bring a large saucepan of salted water to the boil and throw in the spuds, carrots and turnip. We want to par boil them slightly not completely cook them. Should take about 10-15 minutes, time to get the shanks ready.
In a large bowl put in the shanks, 3-4 sprigs of thyme, good sprig of rosemary that’s been broken up a bit, good slosh of olive oil, pinch of salt and pepper and combine thoroughly with your hands. If possible do this the night before or at least 2 hours before you start and leave in the fridge to marinate.
Take the veg off the boil once they are just giving to the point of a knife, drain, and throw back in saucepan and toss about a bit to remove any excess moisture. Pour in a splash of olive oil and a pinch of salt and pepper. Toss about and pour in your casserole dish to completely cover the base, like a bed.
Get the shanks and lay them evenly on top of the veg and pour any excess from the bowl over the top. If marinating, try to take them out of the fridge a good 20 minutes before so the meat comes to room temperature.
Bang it in the oven with the lid on or a covering of foil and cook for 45mins to one hour. Have a look after 40minutes and check on the progress. Take off the lid remove the shanks to one side to rest while you do the veg.
Arrange the veg on a plate, place shanks on top and sprinkle with some chopped flat leaf parsley and a good squeeze of lemon.

Darwin ---the capital city of the Northern Territory Darwin has a pace that might - almost - be described as brisk, at least by Northern Territory standards. The city's populace now reflects its proximity to Asia: the mix of some 50 cultures including Aborigines, Vietnamese, Filipinos, Malays, New Guineans, Pacific Islanders, Japanese, Indonesians and European Australians, provides a strong cosmopolitan flavour. The Northern Territory’s capital, Darwin was founded in 1869, after more than 40 years of failed settlements in the north – abandoned one after another because of malaria outbreaks, cyclones, Aboriginal attacks and supply failure due to the sheer distance from the other white settlements. It was named after Charles Darwin, one of whose shipmates on the Beagle discovered the bay in 1839. The best way to appreciate Darwin's multiethnic mix is to visit this market, held every Thursday and Sunday evening from April to October, with stalls selling foods from around the world and handmade craft including crocodile products, indigenous art and jewellery. If you have come to Darwin city, you will understand the local culture and history of Darwin, taste some delicious food and enjoy the amazing scenery here ,also take some photo is a pretty good experience . do you think so.
