Beef Shanks in Red Wine

Beef Shanks – who would ever guess what a fantastic find they are.  Last week, when I was at the store I purchased four beef shanks and decided to slow cook them in the oven.  It is amazing that just a few ingredients could produce one of the most marvelous meals; perfect on these cool fall days. The marrow from the bones melts into the sauce and it is a true taste treat.  I served these with polenta however, they would be equally good with pasta, rice or crusty bread.  This would be a great meal to entertain family and friends.
