Slow-cooked Pork Shank in Red Wine

October 30, 2010

Simple to prepare, but full of flavour…and quite affordable dish to impress your dining guests!

Serves two. Main ingredients: pork shank, and a bottle of red wine.

Pre-heat the oven to 150’C. Heat a oven-proofed casserole pan. Fry lightly a few cloves of garlic, a chunk of ginger (sliced) and one large onion in some olive oil until soften and lightly brown. Add the pork shank and brown the meat all around. Add 500ml of water (or chicken stock) and a whole bottle of red wine, few cloves and 2 star anise. Bring the liquid to the boil.

Remove the pan from the stove and place it in the pre-heated oven and let it cook slowly for few hours until the meat is falling off the bone.

Serve it with mashed potatoes…yum!

    when it goes into the oven, do you put a lid on the casserole dish?
