Preheat oven to 160c. Dust shanks lightly with flour and remove excess. Heat oil in a large frying pan and cook shanks for 4 minutes, turning, until browned. Remove shanks and then sauté onion and garlic in the pan for 2 minutes.
Transfer shanks, onion and garlic to a casserole dish. Add celery, red wine, tomatoes, beef stock, black pepper and rosemary. Cook covered in the slow oven for 21/2 hours or until meat is tender. Keep covered to ensure the shanks do not dry out.
Serve with crusty bread, your favourite vegetables and mashed potatoes.
