I work on covering the shanks in liquid, & have used up to 1 litre stock & 1 bottle of Red Wine for 7 shanks. I have also removed the shanks & simmered the liquid to reduce before adding the thickeners.

Yes stock is a common substitute for those who don’t like to cook with wine 🙂

Can you use stock instead of wine

It looks to be 6 in the photo but I’m sure it would adapt to however many you need 🙂
