  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. Mix flour and parsley in a bowl; season with salt and pepper. Dip veal shanks into flour mixture, shaking off excess flour.
  3. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Fry veal in hot oil until browned, about 10 minutes; transfer to a large baking dish. Return skillet to stove.

  6. Bake in the preheated oven until veal is very tender, about 90 minutes.
