any excess flour. Sear the shanks on both sides until golden brown. Add the
onions, fennel, and garlic. Cook for 4 minutes, moving everything around to
ensure it's all cooking. Add the wine, tomatoes and stock. Bring to a boil,
cover and place in the oven. Cook for 1 1/2 hours or until the meat is so

oven and place on a platter. Top with chopped oregano, olives, and feta.
