Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C).
  2. Heat an oven-proof deep skillet with a lid over medium-high heat on the stove; add olive oil. Season beef shank with salt and pepper. Cook beef shank in the hot oil until browned on all sides, 5 to 10 minutes. Transfer beef shank to a plate.
  3. Saute onion and celery in the same skillet until onion starts to get translucent, 5 to 10 minutes. Pour wine over onion mixture and bring to a boil while scraping the browned bits of food off of the bottom of the pan with a wooden spoon.
  4. Return beef shank to onion-wine mixture and pour in enough water to cover 1/2 to 3/4 the beef shank. Sprinkle tarragon over shank; cover skillet with lid.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until meat is falling off the bone, at least 5 hours. Season with salt and pepper before serving.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • This is a very flexible recipe, you could use different meats, wines, or spices. Also, including potatoes or carrots would be good too. For an extra kick throw in some Grill Mates® Montreal steak seasoning. For the braver, the marrow in the bones is quite good.

Delicious! I made two changes. 1-I did not have tarragon so I skipped that but used a little rosemary and garlic and Italian seasonings. 2-I pan seared the shanks after dipping them in flour. This made the sauce more like a stew.
