So had an opportunity to try some amazing Ossco Bucco from @porteroad, which I braised and finished in my slow cooker and cooked to tender perfection and served with some homemade mashed potatoes. Must say my family was in awe of this dish. It was definitely some good ole comfort food.

4 chopped Romano Tomatoes
1 tbs Italian seasoning

2 cloves of minced Garlic
1/2 white onion sliced

Add 1 tbsp. of olive oil to pan and add onion, celery, carrot and garlic to the pan. Cook until the vegetables are soft.
Add red wine and beef broth to the skillet and whisk the drippings into the liquid. Add mushrooms and cook for about 2 minutes.
Pour the liquid mixture into your slow cooker and then place the beef shanks into the mixture. Pour the Italian seasoned tomatoes on top.

Spoon on top of mashed potatoes and garnish with fresh herbs like parsley.
