Tonight we are having beef shanks

Nov 08, 2023,23:58 PM

I made most of it yesterday so I didn't have to be rushed today - this isn't a one-pan, 10-minute dinner like some of my favorites. But it is truly delicious and I have made it about 10 times.

Three large beef shanks are cooked 5 hours on low heat in a bath of tomato, balsamic vinegar and water, with carrots, garlic, bay leaves and a bunch of peppercorns.

Bones (with marrow) and carrots

Sauce reduced for about an hour till thick and tasty

Yukon gold mashed potatoes 

Sautéed mushrooms (boring; no picture) and Broccoli waiting to steam.

Wine to wash it down

A hearty loaf to soak up the sauce... 😃

Now just start the oven and let it warm up while we enjoy starters (brought by our guests).

I will update this post after the meal gets assembled and served if I can remember...

Bon Appetite
