Slow cooked veal shins are a special treat, not least because of the delicious bone marrow. This is an easy way to cook them. Apart from basting once or twice you can leave this dish to its own devices.


Ingredients (serves 2)
1 head of garlic
2 x veal shins (approx. 600g)
4 small red onions peeled and quartered
200g carrots cut into chunky shapes
30g fresh ginger, peeled and cut into slivers or discs
4 slices of orange
Fresh bay leaves
400ml strong beef stock
50ml orange juice
2 tbsp honey
Fresh thyme leaves

  1. Heat the oven to 150 C
  2. Cut the the top from the head of garlic but keep whole and leave the papery skin intact.
  3. Arrange the veal shins, garlic head, onions, carrots, ginger and orange slices on a deep sided baking tray. Tuck the bay leaves in and around.
  4. Sprinkle a little salt on the veal shins (optional)
  5. Mix together the stock, orange juice and honey and pour into the baking tray.
  6. Sprinkle with thyme leaves
  7. Cover the tray with foil and bake for 3 hours. Check once or twice during cooking and baste the meat with the stock.
