    The shanks are so underrated! Once all that connective tissue breaks down they become a lovely meal. Makes a great pie filling if there's any left over too.

    SOunds nice but isn't 200deg c a bit overill ? When I stew off tough cuts of venison I only use 160 dec c for an hour and then lower it to 150deg c for another 1 or 2 hours. I was once told that cooking with a too hot an oven actually 'slows' the cooking process of tougher cuts of meat down. What makes tough meat tender is the breaking down of the connective tissue and this is done by slowly bringing the meat up to the cooking temperature.
    nice recipe though.

    Kind regards, Olaf
