Directions

  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.

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 ... I would make this again ...

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 our early just in case. There was a lot of liquid left over so I drained and froze it for the 2nd time I made the recipe and then I only had to add 1/2 of the liquid ingredients. It may be ready sooner. This did not effect the delicious result in the least. LOVE!
