Tried this for Fall PAC 2011. Delicious! We may cook ours a little shorter though as the shanks were pretty much obliterated! As were the onions. Beautiful smells eminated throughout the house the entire day teasing us until we enjoyed the meal with mashed potato and veg. Thanks Connie :)

Made this for hubby coming home for a few days from work. He told me to give it 5 stars. He loved it so much. I did 4 shanks and we only eat 2, so the rest where put in the freezer for another dinner. Love the taste. Thanks for posting.
