 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1      cup           All-purpose flour
      1/2  teaspoon      Oregano
                         Salt and freshly ground pepp
    1      28 ounce Can  plum tomatoes
      1/4  cup           Olive oil
    2      cup           Dry white wine
    4      tablespoon    Butter
    2      cup           Beef stock -- ( homemade or ca
    2                    Onions -- chopped
      3/4  cup           Fresh parsley -- chopped
    6      Lg cloves     garlic -- chopped
    1                    Grated zest of two lemons
      1/2  teaspoon      Dried basil
    5                    b veal shank -- 2 thick 1. sea
                         w             th salt and pepper
 dredge pieces of veal in it and shake off excess. 2. Heat oil and butter in lg
dutch oven, and quickly sear the veal over med-high heat, browning well on all
sides. Transfer veal to paper towels to drain. 3. Add the onions, garlic, basil,
and oregano to the pan and cook over med heat for 10 minutes, stirring
occasionally. 4. Add the tomatoes, salt and pepper to taste and continue to cook
for 10 min.  Skim off any fat. 5. Add the wine, raise the heat, and bring to a
boil; Reduce the heat and simmer, uncovered for 15 min. 6. Return the veal to the
pan and add just enough stock to cover the meat.  Cover and let simmer for 1 to 1
1/2 hours. Or bake in 350 degree oven for the same time. Remove lid and continue
to simmer or bake for 1/2 hour till veal is tender. 7. Just before serving,
sprinkle with the lemon zest and parsley. It is traditional to serve this with
risotto Milanase. It has been suggested that I try ( and I will!) small potatoes,
tossed with some olive oil and garlic or any kind of pasta treated the same way.
