  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C).
  2. Heat an oven-proof deep skillet with a lid over medium-high heat on the stove; add olive oil. Season beef shank with salt and pepper. Cook beef shank in the hot oil until browned on all sides, 5 to 10 minutes. Transfer beef shank to a plate.
  3. Saute onion and celery in the same skillet until onion starts to get translucent, 5 to 10 minutes. Pour wine over onion mixture and bring to a boil while scraping the browned bits of food off of the bottom of the pan with a wooden spoon.
  4. Return beef shank to onion-wine mixture and pour in enough water to cover 1/2 to 3/4 the beef shank. Sprinkle tarragon over shank; cover skillet with lid.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until meat is falling off the bone, at least 5 hours. Season with salt and pepper before serving.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • This is a very flexible recipe, you could use different meats, wines, or spices. Also, including potatoes or carrots would be good too. For an extra kick throw in some Grill Mates(R) Montreal steak seasoning. For the braver, the marrow in the bones is quite good.
  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

This was amazing! So easy to make. It was perfect!

I have never cooked beef shanks before. I bought some at the market just because they looked, and were priced nice. So I came to A/R to find a recipie to make them and this was the only one! I ...

I've got this in the oven right now and am giving it a 4 star because it smells devine. I have one question though, where is the beef broth used?

Made this dish last night ... it was good and I meant to take a pic but we were sitting down eating when I remembered! I added a couple cloves of garlic, a couple carrots and a parsnip to it .....

This was delish! My entire family of 6 LOVED it. That's not easy to do. This is a keeper recipe. If using organic grass-fed beef shanks from local farmer (truly clean meat), I would check it an ...
