This is a great recipe, though chicken broth is typically used. I had in my freezer some excellent homemade chicken stock and I used that with the white wine. I always salt and pepper the shanks before dusting with flour, and I grate the carrots and allow them to carmelize with the onion and garlic. This is a great do-ahead meal. I just made it for a sit-down dinner party for 12, served with a rustic mash of yukon gold potatoes, cauliflower and leeks, alongside a hearty vegetable salad and bread. We had a choice of Rioja, Cotes-du-Rhone and Malbec wines. A perfect birthday dinner for a dear friend. You and your guests will be thrilled with the results of this dish.
