The only thing better than a sweet roll is a sweet roll filled with chocolate. Pain au chocolat is made from the same kind of dough as a croissant, meaning it requires a multi-step "flaking" process. The pastries are rolled out and cut into rectangles and filled with a nugget of dark chocolate.Then, they need to rise overnight. before baking to flaky perfection in the oven the next morning.


  • 2 shanks (pork)
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 5 ounces vin santo (may substitute a sweet dessert wine)
  • salt and ground black pepper


  1. Season the shanks with salt and pepper.
  2. Place the 2 tablespoons of oil in the slow cooker.
  3. Add the shanks.
  4. Pour the Vin Santo over the shanks.
  5. Set the slow cooker to high for 4 hours.

This was a great pork shank recipe that I plan on making a long time. It was enriched with bold and delightful flavors and the pork was nice and juicy. It pulled apart with the touch of a fork and is a 4 star recipe all the way.
