I don't know why the person before me only gave this recipe 1 star, because it is absolutely fabulous! I first got this recipe from the cookbook and it is my all time favorite. When I'm sick, this is what I make. The only changes I make are: I always sear the beef shanks and leave them whole until the end, and I often used V8 juice in place of the tomato. This disappears in my house, just me & my husband, and my husband says he doesn't like soup! Oh, and it makes your house smell delicious while it cooks.
