I have said it alot, I love veal, and making things in the slow cooker, makes it so simple.If you like, you can use beef shanks. You may have to request the shanks from your butcher, at least where I live, they aren't always available.This dish is also known as ossobuco
- 4 lbs veal shanks
- 1⁄4 cup all-purpose flour
- 3 tablespoons olive oil or 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 1 medium onion, chopped

- 1⁄2 cup water
- 1⁄3 cup dry white wine
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon dried basil
- 1⁄2 teaspoon dried thyme
- 1⁄4 teaspoon pepper
- Trim excess fat from veal shanks. Coat veal with flour. Heat oil in 10-inch skillet over medium heat. Cook veal in oilabout 20 minutes, turning occasionally, until brown on all sides; drain.

Absolutly wonderful recipe. I used chicken broth in place of the water, as well as adding flat parsley. Thanks KittyKitty for a great one. Purdyman
