- 2 tbsp. avocado oil or olive oil
- 1 & 1/2 pounds grass-fed beef shank (or osso bucco), seasoned
- 2 cups beef stock
- 2 bay leaves
- 2 tsp. dried thyme
- 1 tbsp. dried rosemary
- 1 & 1/2 tsp. sea salt
- 1 tsp. crushed peppercorns
- 1/2 cup mirin (can use red wine)
- 14 oz. can stewed tomatoes, diced
- 1 head garlic, peeled and chopped
- 1 new potatoes, chopped into 2-inch chunks
- 4 carrots, chopped into 2-inch chunks
- 3 stalks celery, chopped into 1-inch chunks
- 1 large onion, peeled and chopped into 1-inch chunks
- 2 tbsp. parsley, minced
Preheat oven to 325. In a large frying pan heat the oil and sear the shank until browned on all sides. Put the shank into a large clay cooking pot (3 quarts), and cover with stock, bay leaves, thyme, rosemary, sea salt and pepper, and mirin. Cover and bake 2 hours. Uncover and remove shank. Remove meat from the bone and chop the meat into 2-inch pieces. Put the meat back into the clay pot with tomatoes, garlic, potatoes, carrots, celery, and onion. Cover and continue cooking for 1 hour. Taste to adjust seasoning. Garnish with fresh parsley.
