Instructions

Serves 4. Using a large heavy cooking pan, gently simmer onion, leek, celery and garlic in half the olive oil until onion has softened. Meanwhile, dust shanks with flour, shake in sieve to remove excess. Remove vegetables from the pan. In the remaining oil quickly brown veal shanks, a few at a time. If using brandy, put all shanks in pan and turn up heat. Warm brandy, strike a light. Pour brandy over shanks in pan and touch flame to the vapours. Place the shanks as tightly as you can to stop them falling apart during cooking. Add wine, stock and canned tomatoes, breaking up the tomatoes. Add oregano leaves and black pepper. Cover with tight fitting lid or foil and put in oven at 160C for at least 2 1/2 hours. Serve with rice and sprinkling of gremolata.
