Introduction: Delicious Osso Buco Meal

So, the other day I was grocery shopping and came across a packet of Osso Buco. I had never heard of it, so I called my mother-in-law and asked if she had made it before. She said yeah and shared a recipe she used.

This turned out to be a delicious meal! Mmm!

Step 2: Prep Veal

  1. Tie the shanks with the twine.

  3. Dredge the shanks in flour enough to form a nice coat.

Step 3: Brown Veal

  1. Heat oil over high heat.

    1. Let them brown 4-6 minutes.
  3. Turn brown shanks over to the other side and brown another 4-6 minutes.
  4. Remove from the pot and set aside for now.

Step 4: Prep Veggies

  1. Lower the heat and proceed by prepping the veggies.
  2. Cut one carrot, one celery stalk, and one half onion into small cubes.

Step 5: Add Veggies and Tomato Paste

  1. Turn the heat up to medium and mix in the veggies.
  2. Add a tablespoon of tomato paste and mix.

Step 6: Add White Wine and Chicken Stock

  1. Place the shanks back into the pot.
  2. Add 1/2 cup of white wine and allow it to reduce by half. About 5-8 minutes.
  3. Add enough chicken stock to reach the surface of the shanks but not cover them.

Step 7: Add Herbs

  1. After adding the chicken stock, prepare the bouquet garni.
    1. Cut a 6"x6" cheesecloth square.
    2. Sprinkle 1 teaspoon each of thyme, crushed bay leaves, and rosemary into the middle of the square.
    3. Tie it with the twine and add it to the pot.
  2. Bring to a boil and then cover and simmer 60-90 minutes, or until the meat easily comes off the bone.

Step 8: Plate and Garnish

  2. Scoop some of the veggies and sauce out and pour over the shank.
  3. Garnish the shank with chopped parsley and lemon zest.
