  • 4 1-lb. veal shanks
  • Vegetable oil
  • 2 carrots, trimmed

  • 2 sprigs fresh thyme
  • 1/2 tsp. whole peppercorns
  • 1/2 tsp. salt

Add veal shanks to a hot skillet with 1/4-inch oil. Sauté until browned on all sides, about 10 minutes. Transfer shanks to a slow cooker and add vegetables. Pour stock or broth over top and add bay leaves, thyme, peppercorns, and salt. Pour red wine into slow cooker until contents are two-thirds submerged. Cook on high for 2 to 3 hours. Continue cooking on low heat for 6 to 8 hours, or until meat is tender. This dish is served in the restaurant with quinoa and an heirloom tomato salad.
