Braising meat can be a somehow tedious job for some of us, but the tender end-result is worth the wait. We urge you to sear, then cook a few beef shanks in white wine, then toss them in a pan with mushrooms and heavy cream. Then you'll understand.

  1. This sounds delicious! But I have always braised my beef shanks low and slow for hours to get them tender and break down the connective tissue. Do they get tender enough cooked at this temp/time frame?

    1. Hi, Laura! You are totally right. However, in this particular case, we braised, then used aluminum foil during baking, and finally, we chopped the meat and cooked it again on the stove. All these explain our shorter cooking time. It ended up fine. 🙂🎈
