Braised Veal Shank With Apples & Mushrooms
  • Make 3 or 4 incisions in the edge of each veal shank.
  • Brown the shanks in the oven for about 5 minutes at 250°C in a deep gastronome dish.
  • Add the onion, garlic, sprigs of parsley, salt, pepper, apple juice and veal stock and cover with the lid (or aluminium foil).
  • Braise the shanks at 150°C for about 4 hours or until very tender. Leave the skanks to cool, then cut the meaty parts into chunks.
  • Sieve the stock and skim off the fat.
  • Melt the butter in a pan and sauté the mushrooms for about 5 min. until golden. Add the apples and cook for another 2 min.

  • Root vegetable mash:
  • Boil baking potatoes, celeriac and parsley root in a pot until tender – approx. 30 min. Drain and let cool slightly.
  • Mash the root vegetables, adding milk, salt and pepper to taste.
