  • 2-4 beef shanks
  • Sea salt to taste
  • 8 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons fresh thyme plus a few extra sprigs
  • 1 cup bone broth
  • ½ cup water
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Clean the shanks, pat them dry thoroughly and salt both sides to taste.
  2. Heat some of the coconut oil in the bottom of a skillet on medium-high heat. Sear the shanks for a few minutes a side, adding coconut oil if needed. Place seared shanks in a large baking dish.
  3. Turn down the heat on the skillet to medium and add the garlic and thyme leaves. Cook for a couple of minutes, until lightly browned and fragrant. Add bone broth and water to the skillet and boil to reduce slightly.
  4. Pour the broth mixture over the shanks, and add the remaining thyme sprigs. Cover tightly with aluminum foil and braise for 2 hours, or until fork-tender.
