Step 1

Heat oil in heavy large pot over medium-high heat; add mushrooms and onions. Saute until mushrooms brown; about 18 minutes. Add celery and garlic and stir 1 minute. Add beef shank slices and all remaining ingredients. Bring to boil. Reduce to medium-low heat. Cover and simmer until meat is tender, about 1 1/2 hours. Remove from heat.
Using tongs, remove meat from pot. Cool slightly. Remove meat from bones; discard bones and any tough connective tissue. Cut meat into bite-size pieces and return to soup. Season soup to taste with salt and pepper.
