      I found myself with beef shanks in the freezer (after purchasing a quarter beef several months ago) - had mushrooms from a big sale - and found this recipe! It is a hearty soup, but pretty healthy in content and with a very mild flavor. I think some will find it lacking in seasoning, so you may wish to adjust - we prefer un-spicy things, so it was fine for us. Do NOT skip the step of skimming the fat off - the shanks generate a lot of fat and it must be removed. I did that at the second serving (brain cramp the first time) and lost some veggies and spinach when skimming late. I will make this one again.
