4 beef shanks,

1 onion, chopped
½ cup celery, chopped
1 carrot, chopped
4-5 bay leaves
2 Tbsp canola oil
Salt and pepper to taste

For baking:
1-2 carrots, chopped round
1 big potato, chopped
½ cup sweet peas

Place canola oil in a braising pot and sear each beef shank 3-4 minutes each side. Place all the remaining ingredients in and fill with hot water. Bring to a boil and simmer for 60 to 75 minutes, or until the beef gets tender.
Then, take each beef shank over a piece of aluminum foil and divide the raw vegetables you prepared for baking in four and transfer to each aluminum foil. If desired remove the cooked vegetables from the braising pot and add them as well. Wrap up the foil around the beef shanks and place over an oven tray. Preheat the oven to 200 C and bake for about 45-60 minutes.
Serve either hot or warm.
