Number of Servings: 2


    1 lb veal shanks, cut into short lengths
    2 Tbsp flour
    2 Tbsp butter
    1 clove garlic, crushed
    1/2 large onion, chopped
    1/2 large carrot, chopped
    1/3 cup dry white wine
    1/3 cup beef stock
    1/2 (14.5 oz) can diced tomatoes
    salt and pepper to taste
    1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
    1/2 cup garlic, minced
    1 tsp grated lemon zest


1. Dust the veal shanks lightly with flour. Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium to medium-high heat. Add the veal, and cook until browned on the outside. Remove to a bowl, and keep warm. Add two cloves of crushed garlic and onion to the skillet; cook and stir until onion is tender. Return the veal to the pan and mix in the carrot and wine. Simmer for 10 minutes.

2. Pour in the tomatoes and beef stock, and season with salt and pepper. Cover, and simmer over low heat for 1 1/2 hours, basting the veal every 15 minutes or so. The meat should be tender, but not falling off the bone.

3. In a small bowl, mix together the parsley, 1 clove of garlic and lemon zest. Mix into the veal just before serving.

  • Had the exact same recipe but made with Lamb Osso Buco (Mistakenly purchased!) Not at all bad but Veal would have been better. Next time I'll be more observant at Costco! Had with roasted Cauliflower. - 7/27/12
