This is my Italian mother-in-law's favorite recipe. She had described it to me and I had never heard of it but searched the recipe out. So glad I did. A couple of things I changed based on my MIL's description was to add large can of crushed tomatoes. Then I bake it in the oven real slow for 3-4 hours (after browning the veal shanks). When done I remove the shanks to a serving platter and use my immersion blender (or processor) to smooth out the sauce. (My Italian in-laws don't have sauce - they call it gravy) Then I serve sauce over spaghetti or linguini, broccoli rabe, and shanks. This is absolutely delisious! This is now my "go to" menu when having guests over.
