  Garlic 2 Clove (10 gm), cut into paper-thin slivers
  Lamb shanks 4 Pound (Meaty, 4 Lamb Shanks, 1 Pound Each)
  Salt To Taste
  Freshly ground black pepper To Taste
  Vegetable oil 3 Tablespoon
  Butter 2 Tablespoon
  Finely chopped onion 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Beef stock 2 1⁄2 Cup (40 tbs) (Fresh Or Canned)
  Lentils 2 1⁄2 Cup (40 tbs), thoroughly washed and drained
  Bay leaf 1
  Chopped scallions 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Chopped fresh parsley 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)

Preheat the oven to 350°.
With the point of a small, sharp knife, insert 2 or 3 garlic slivers into the meaty portion of each lamb shank.
Then sprinkle the shanks generously with salt and a few grindings of black pepper.
In a 12-inch heavy skillet, heat the oil over high heat until a light haze forms over it.
Add the shanks, and then, over moderate heat, cook them on all sides for about 10 minutes, turning them with tongs.
When the shanks are a deep golden brown, transfer them to a rack set in a shallow roasting pan.
Roast them in the middle of the oven for about an hour, or until the shanks are tender.
Basting is unnecessary.
While the shanks are roasting, melt 2 tablespoons of butter over moderate heat in a 2- to 4-quart saucepan.
When the foam subsides add the onions and cook them for about 6 minutes, stirring frequently until they are transparent but not brown.
Pour in the stock and add the lentils, bay leaf, salt and a few grindings of black pepper.
Bring to a boil.
Cover the pot and reduce the heat to its lowest point.
Simmer the lentils, stirring occasionally, for about 30 minutes, or until they have absorbed all the stock and are very tender.
