Example recipe and preparation:
Takes about 6 to 7 hours to cook.
One beef shank per person.
Root vegetables; whatever looks good- carrots, sweet potato, tomatoes and beans will soak up some of the juices, and will add flavor to the sauce. Also add chopped garlic and a good size onion.
Stock; vegetable, beef, or chicken, can add wine as well. Need enough liquid to cover the beef shanks by 3/4 up to the top.
Spices; use your favorite spices & little salt, be careful the sauce will cooked down and concentrate the flavours. The cooking method is to allow the meat and combined tissues to break down and release healthy nutrients, and combine the flavours. Add some olive oil.
Example cooking method:
Take organic grass fed beef shanks out of the refrigerator an hour before cooking.
Cut root vegetables and tomatoes into bite sized pieces, if using sweet potatoes- put the cut pieces in a bowl of water (to keep the pieces from getting brown) and set aside.
Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.
Oil a Dutch oven, or large heavy oven roasting pan, and place on the stove top.
Heat the pan on high heat, and saute the shanks, cooking both sides until nice and brown- a few minutes per side.
Add the onions, tomatoes, and root vegetables (not the sweet potatoes though), and brown.
Carefully add in the stock and wine (if using) covering the shanks, up to 3/4 deep, and heat until the liquid starts to simmer.
Add the spices, and garlic.
Carefully place the pan into the oven.
Cook for about 3 hours, check shanks, can add more stock if liquid has boiled down.
Add sweet potatoes (if using).
Cook for another 3 to 4 hours, or until the meat easily falls off the bone, and is soft and tender.
Can let it sit, and prepare anything to have with, rice, risotto, or fresh dipping bread for spreading the soft and nutritious marrow.
