Veal shank is usually a tough cut of meat. But after cooking it several hours in a slow cooker, you'll be surprised at how tender it can be. Serve over creamed potatoes.

What you will need

4 (10- to 12-ounce) veal shanks

1/2 cup white wine

3 tablespoons butter

2 teaspoons salt, divided

24 pearl onions, fresh or frozen, blanched (see Note, below)

4 garlic cloves

2 medium carrots, quartered

2 parsnips, cut into eighths

2 large turnips, peeled and quartered

2 leeks, halved and cut crosswise

2 celery ribs, chopped

1 fresh thyme sprig

1 fresh rosemary sprig

1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
