Recipe Ingredients for Tender Braised Veal Shanks

3 1/2 lbs veal shank, bone in (it is safest to order it from your butcher's as it is not a commonly requested cut)
2 tablespoons kosher salt
2 lbs vidalia onions (substitute peeled shallots)
1 1/2 teaspoons coriander seeds
1 1/2 teaspoons dried thyme (or 3 sprigs fresh thyme)
1 tsp cloves , use 3 whole cloves
1 Salt, freshly ground pepper
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 1/2 cups white wine (such as a late-harvest Tariquet, a Muscat, a Jurançon)

Recipe Directions for Tender Braised Veal Shanks

  1. Set the veal shank in a glass or ceramic baking dish, rub with the coarse salt, cover with plastic wrap, and let stand at room temperature for an hour.

  2. Preheat the oven to 160°C (320°F). Put the onions in a large (about 7 liters or quarts) ovenproof pot with a lid (ideally, a cast-iron cocotte). Sprinkle with coriander, thyme, cloves, salt, and pepper. Drizzle with olive oil and toss to coat.

  3. Rinse the meat well under cold water and shake dry gently. Nestle amidst the onions, pour in the wine, cover, and slip into the oven.

  4. Bake for 3 to 4 hours, flipping the shank halfway through, until the meat is caramelized and so soft it falls off the bones, and until the sauce is thick, and syrupy.
