When braised gently and patiently, veal shanks become fork tender and wonderfully rich in flavor. It’s almost impossible to go wrong. This is one of the many variations on the classic recipe. Peas and veal go very well together.
Like most braised meat dishes, the veal shanks will keep well for 2 to 3 days in the refrigerator. To reheat, add a couple tablespoons water, cover, and place over medium-low heat.
