In the Oven or by Slow Cooker
This dish is fall and winter comfort food. The shanks are packed with flavor and the long, slow cooking process makes them tender, juicy, and succulent while yielding a rich sauce.
This recipe—and other great ones—can be found in The Culinary Institute of America's cookbook, Low & Slow: The Art and Technique of Braising, BBQ, and Slow Roasting.
Slow Cooker Method: At the point in step 5 where the broth and meat are combined, add everything to your slow cooker and proceed as suggested by the manufacturer.
