"My version of this recipe I got from my mother in law., but the amounts are the same. I use bacon grease to grease the skillet, heat it in the oven, and skip the shortening mixed into the batter, but everything else is the same. Thank goodness no sugar in sight. With sugar it becomes some kind of cornbread cake. Ugh!! "
"I used two 28 oz. cans of crushed tomatoes and it was more than enough for 4 good sized shanks. The sauce is wonderful and I took others advice and added more veggies. The wine and orange juice gives a great flavor. The extra sauce will be used for a pasta topping or on top of the left over polenta. A great dish."
