Add a little more olive oil to the pan and reduce heat to medium-high. Add celery, onions, peppers, mushrooms, garlic, fennel seeds, crushed red pepper, honey, herb bundle and salt, and cook for about 7 minutes or until onions are translucent.
Add wine and reduce by half. Add bone broth and tomatoes, and bring to boil. Add reserved meat back to the pan and cover. Place in oven and cook 2-2 1/2 hours or until meat is fork tender.
Remove herb bundle. Say Grace and enjoy!
