Rinse the shanks, pat dry, and season with salt and pepper.
Place some flour in large zip-top bag.
Add the shanks to the bag, one at a time, and shake to coat with flour.
Shake off excess flour as you remove the shanks from the bag.
Heat the oil and 1 tablespoon of the butter in a large Dutch oven over medium-high heat.
Brown the shanks on both sides, then transfer to a plate.
Lower the heat to medium and add the remaining 1 tablespoon of the butter to the Dutch oven, along with the onions, garlic, carrots, and celery.
Saute the vegetables for about 5 minutes, or until soft.
