I love making crockpot dishes. The meat tenderizes nicely and mixing all sorts of vegetables makes it filing and hearty. We always have leftovers which is brown-bag friendly.

Ingredients
  • 4 beef shanks - cleaned and rinsed with water
  • 3 whole tomatoes cut in quarters
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 2 stalk celery
  • 1 cup of button mushrooms cleaned
  • 2 tbsp chicken buillion
  • 2-3 cups of water
  • 1 whole garlic chopped
  • 2 tbsp onion powder
  • splash of Pinot Noir


Procedures
  • Place beef shank into the crockpot at high setting
  • Add in all the vegetables
  • Stir in the water with the chicken buillion. Mix well
  • Add in 1/2 of the water mixture into the crockpot
  • Add in a splash of Pinot Noir
  • Add the remaining of the chicken buillion water
  • Put the crockpot lid and cook for 6 hours at high heat
