Beef Shank Simmered in White Wine

Beef Shank Simmered in White Wine

Long-simmered dishes are just comforting. There aren't a lot of ingredients, but the sauce is delicious. Serve with bread for dipping.

Ingredients: 2 servings

Beef shank
200 g
1 to 2
White wine
300 ml
2 to 3 cloves
Soup stock cube
Water (as needed)
100 ml
Oregano (if you have some)
a small amount


1. Put olive oil and crushed garlic cloves in a heavy bottomed pan and turn on the heat. Cook until fragrant. Add the beef and brown.
2. When the beef is nicely colored, add the sliced onions and sauté briefly. Add the white wine and soup stock cube and simmer over low heat.
3. If the liquid reduces, check the meat to see how tender it is. If it's still tough, add water and continue simmering.
4. Serve with bread to mop up that delicious sauce.
5. Here, I added warm simmered vegetables for color.

Story Behind this Recipe

I like beef shank since it becomes tender if you simmer it for a while.
I wanted to make a version simmered in beer, but I had white wine so I tried that instead.
