Another recipe for Osso buco, an Italian classic veal recipe. Veal shanks are first browned and then slowly cooked in a
stock made of vegetables, herbs (oregano, thyme and rosemary) and white wine.
Preparation time: 10 minutes, Cooking time: 120 minutes, Serves: 4
4 veal shanks (these should be at least 1 1/2 inches thick)
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/2 cup chopped onion
3-4 garlic cloves, sliced
1 cup chopped celery
1/2 cup chopped carrots
1/2 cup chopped parsley
1/2 tsp dried thyme (or 1 tsp fresh thyme)
1/2 tsp dried oregano (or 1 tsp fresh oregano)
1 sprig of fresh rosemary
1/2 tsp hot chili pepper flakes or to taste
1 - 1/2 cup white wine
Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
Heat the olive oil in a heavy pan over medium heat. The pan should be
large enough to hold all 4 veal shanks on one layer. Until the oil
heats up, dust the veal shanks with flour, making sure that they are
covered all around with a thin layer of flour.
Place the veal
shanks in the pan and slowly brown them on all sides. When browned,
remove them from the pan, put them on a plate and set aside.
the chopped vegetables (onions, celery, carrots and parsley) to the pan
and saute them until glossy and a little wilted. Add the garlic, chili pepper flakes, thyme, oregano and sprig of rosemary and cook for 1-2 minutes, stirring
constantly. Add the white wine and season with salt and
pepper to taste. Add the veal shanks to
the pan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 1 to 2 hours (actual time depends on the size of
the veal shanks), until the meat is tender and falls from the bones.
Serve with a risotto or pasta tossed in butter.
