Place lamb shanks in a bowl and dust with combined flour, salt and pepper. Heat oil in a large heavy based pan or casserole dish. Over medium heat brown the shanks in batches then remove.
In a closed baking dish add the onions, garlic, tomatoes, stock, wine and rosemary and (optional) a quarter of a cup of brown sugar. Add the shanks to the mixture ensuring that they are as submerged as possible. Cook for 4-6 hours at 130degrees or until they are falling off the bone.
