David Sumidas Hawaiian Beef Shank Stew
Hawaiian style beef stew made with beef shanks instead of stew meat and served on a bed of fresh Sumida Farm watercress.
2-3 large beef shanks
1 medium local sweet onion, cut in wedges
1 tablespoon oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 (14-1/2 oz.) cans beef broth
2 tablespoons worcestershire sauce
1/2 cup wine
2 bay leaves
1 teaspoon dried thyme
2 carrots, peeled and cut into chunks
2 stalks celery, cut into chunks
2 potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks
Salt and pepper to taste
In a large pot, heat oil over medium-high heat and fry beef shanks until lightly browned, turning over, about 5 min. Add onion and fry about 3 min. Add garlic and fry about 1/2 min. Add remaining ingredients and simmer 1 1/2-2 hours until beef is tender and falling off the bone.
