Veal Shank Tajine for Two

You can never be too rich, too thin or have too many tajines.  I’ve got the last one covered!

I love the osso bucco cut of veal and it’s bone filled with rich, opulent marrow.

So good!

Veal Shank Tajine for Two

2 person tajine

6 pieces of bacon, sliced

1/2 onion, sliced

1/2 leek, halved and sliced

1 celery branch, sliced

1 small carrot, sliced

Salt and pepper

1 tbsp butter

2 thick slices of veal shank

1 cup of broth(veal, beef or chicken)

Brown and crisp the bacon in a large pan.   Remove, drain and set aside.  Add the onion, leek and celery to the pan and saute for about 2 minutes.  Add the carrot and continue to saute for 1 minute.  Season with salt and pepper then put on the bottom of the tajine.

Add the butter and veal shanks to the pan and brown both sides.   Put on top of the vegetables, pour the broth over all, cover and roast in a 375 degree oven for 1 hour. Remove the tajine cover and continue to roast for an additional 15 minutes.

Wine suggestion:  Bourgogne Epineuil

  1. Sounds great – I guess we’re talking Fahrenheit with the temperatures! Nice looking pics, but I see you’re not that keen on tagines.

  2. Lovely pics and fab meal, especially love the tajine pic, enough for a moroccan feast.

  3. I had the best veal chop last night in NOLA! This looks wonderful and reminds me of that dish. I love the collection.

  6. I wanted to apologize for the video comment I left the other day. I had just gotten back from a farm animal rescue and after hearing the stories I made a bad choice to post that on your blog….

    • It’s okay honey. Welcome back. Please keep visiting. Just if you see something in the title that you would prefer not to know about, just skip that post. I’m glad you came back 🙂
