This is a thick and rich Italian dish that just oozes flavour. I have made this so many times that the page in my recipe book is speckled with the sauce. Please don't use beef shank as it is too tough. This is also suitable for a slow cooker but you will have to reduce the liquid content.
Once this is on the plate you can suck the marrow out of the bones (as my husband does) or I prefer to remove the marrow with my knife and blend it into the sauce for an extra kick - that just makes the dish for me.
Did this recipe a couple of months ago but just hadn't the time to review. Really tasty winter warmer. I also use good tasty stock which can make a recipe even better. Great flavours all round in this recipe and will use again next winter. Thanks for sharing JacksBack. - 01 Dec 2014
Loved this. The meat was really tender and the touch of lemon gave a nice zing. - 10 May 2014
