How to make it
- Preheat the oven to 325
- Add pancetta to a Dutch oven or heavy pot (one that can be used for cooking on top of the stove as well as in the oven)
- Add 1/2 stick of butter - stir frequently as you melt butter with pancetta or oil
- Remove cooked panceta from pan and set aside
- Season the veal shanks with a liberal coating of the salt and pepper
- Then coat the veal shanks in a moderate dusting of flour
- Add veal to the pot and brown on both sides, then remove from pan and set aside
- Add celery, carrot, garlic, onion, and herbs to the pan to cook about 8 more minutes.
- Add the veal as well as the pancetta back to the pan, along with tomato paste. Add the wine and some of the the combined stock until you have covered the veal half way.
- Let pot simmer on the stove for 3 minutes
- Place pot, or Dutch oven, in the oven and cook for 90 minutes.
- Make gremolata:
- Combine and very finely chop all ingredients and serve in a separate dish as a topping, or sprinkle for the dish.
- Provide small spoons to each person in order to scrape out the (by now) very flavorful veal marrow.
- Serve over risotto or rice.
