       2    Onions; chopped

     1/2 ts Dried basil

     3/4 c  Fresh parsley; chopped
       1    Grated zest of two lemons
   5 - 6   lb veal shank; 2 thick 1. season flour with 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. Let me know if you try it and what you think!
