The name may sound daunting, but this one-pot Italian classic comes together in just a few simple steps. The secret is to cook the dish “low and slow,” resulting in fall-off-the-bone tender meat, flavourful vegetables and a sauce so delicious that you may be tempted to lick the bowl.

  • Place flour in shallow dish. Add meat, 1 shank at a time, turning to evenly coat both sides of each shank with flour.
  • Heat 2 Tbsp. oil in Dutch oven or small stockpot on medium-high heat. Add meat; cook 3 min. on each side or until shanks are evenly browned on both sides. Remove meat from pan; cover to keep warm.
  • Heat remaining oil in same pan. Add carrots, celery and onions; cook 3 to 4 min. or until crisp-tender, stirring frequently. Add potatoes and bay leaves; cook 5 min., stirring occasionally. Stir in broth; bring to boil. Cook 1 min., stirring constantly to scrape browned bits from bottom of pan. Stir in pasta sauce.
  • Return meat to pan; spoon sauce over meat. Cover; simmer on medium-low heat 1-1/2 hours or until meat is very tender, turning every 20 min., adding more broth if necessary to keep meat moist. (The level of the cooking liquid should always be about 3/4 the way up sides of shanks.)
  • Remove from heat. Remove and discard bay leaves. Drizzle lemon juice over ingredients in pan; sprinkle with parsley.


Prepare using centre-cut veal shanks.


Substitute fresh rosemary for the parsley.


Prepare using any variety of potatoes you have on hand.
