  1. Made this tonight. Added 2 tbs tomato paste. Cooked 45 min pressure waited 10 min. Rested meat on platter 10 min. Was very good.!

    1. Hey Mermaid,
      I think he forgot a step. From my experience, I would add about 2 Tbs of tomato paste after sauteing the shanks, possibly, then a little wine before adding the braising liquid. I'll give it a shot and let you know.
