2-3 beef shank steaks, floured
1 1/2 cups minced onion
3/4 cup each minced celery and carrots
1 1/2 TBS minced garlic
splash of dry red or white wine
Bouquet Garni (3 sprigs parsley, 1 sprig rosemary, 1-2 sprigs of thyme and 1 sprig of oregano; tied together with string)
8-10 cups water
28 oz San Marzano tomatoes, w/ juice
pinches of crushed red and black pepper
2 carrots, 1 celery rib, 1 potato, 1/2 onion; cut into bite sized pieces
1/4 head cabbage, sliced
1 tsp. sea salt - to taste
1/2 tsp. pepper - to taste

In a heavy pan, brown floured beef shanks well in oil. Remove and add minced veggies and a touch of flour. Cook until browned and soft. Splash with wine or stock and reduce until almost gone.

Add back shanks, 8-10 cups water, bouquet garni, and pinches of crushed red and black pepper. Simmer approx. 3 hours, partially covered. Remove meat and shred. For a thicker soup, puree veggies, optional.

Add tomatoes (chopping with a spoon), carrots, celery, potato, onion and cabbage along with salt and pepper. Once veggies are soft, taste and adjust with salt, pepper and/or more water. - Chef Mick (Michelangelo) Rosacci, --
