4 veal shanks, cut 3" thick (3 1/2 to 4 lb.)
Salt and pepper
6 T. extra-virgin olive oil
1 med carrot, chopped into 1/4-inch-thick coins
1 sml Spanish onion, chopped into 1/2-inch dice
1 celery stalk, chopped into 1/4-inch slices
2 T. chopped fresh thyme leaves

Basic Tomatoe Sauce:
1 Spanish onion, cut into 1/4-inch dice
4 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
3 oz. virgin olive oil
2 T. dried leaves
1/2 carrot, shredded finely
2 28-ounce cn of tomatoes, crushed and mixed
Salt to taste
2 c. chicken stock
2 c. dry white wine
Gremolata - Mx in sm bowl:
1/4 cup finely chopped Italian parsley
1/4 cup pine nuts, toasted under the broiler until dark brown
Zest of 1 lemon

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Season the shanks all over with salt and pepper. In a heavy-bottomed 6 to 8 quart casserole, heat the olive oil until smoking. Place the shanks in the pan and brown all over, turning to get every surface, 12 to 15 minutes. Remove the shanks and set aside. Reduce the heat to medium, add the carrot, onion, celery and thyme leaves and cook, stirring regularly, until golden brown and slightly softened, 8 to 10 minutes. Add the tomato sauce (see prep below), chicken stock and wine and bring to a boil. Place shanks back into pan, making sure they are submerged at least halfway. If shanks are not covered halfway, add more stock. Cover the pan with tight-fitting lid of aluminum foil. Place in oven for 2 to 2 1/2 hours and cook until meat is nearly falling off the bone.

Basic Tomato Sauce prep:
To Make Tomato Sauce: Saute onion and garlic in olive oil over medium heat for about 10 minutes, or until translucent but not browned. Add thyme and carrot, cook 5 minutes over medium heat and add tomatoes. Bring to boil, lower heat to just bubbling and simmer 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Season with salt to taste and set aside.

Remove the casserole from the oven and let stand 10 minutes before serving with Gremolata.
