Osso Bucco (Italian Veal Shank)

Osso Bucco

I haven’t cooked Osso Bucco for a few years.   It is veal shank shallow fried, drown in white wine and stewed with tomato.  At least, it is the way I have been cooking for some time.  The recipe stays roughly on my mind.  And it’s easy.  Once you have completed a few steps  which is more or less put the right ingredients into the cooking pan, you just let it cook itself and be happy to have a good lunch or dinner.

First mix salt and pepper with flour.  Coat the osso bucco with the flour mixture.

Pan fried it.  A few minutes of each side until it turns golden brown. Pour in white wine and let it until it is almost dried up.

Pour in a can of good quality tomato.  Once it is boiled, simmer the meat for 1.5 to 2 hours.  The last step is to add lemon zest, parsley, anchovy and minced garlic.  Be moderate with the latter two.

Italians eat Osso Bucco with saffron risotto.  Not to mention, a bit salt and pepper and taste the seasoning if it fits your taste bud.  I just had a black sesame roll and a glass of white wine.  The dish was cooked while I was working at home, almost effortless.  Worth a trial!
