Ossobuco ala milanese or osso buco ala milanese.

Delicious braised dish made most commonly with veal shanks. Also made with lamb shanks.

Sorry, I just realized you wanted a recipe. The following is derived from a Marcella Hazan recipe and is delicious!


Osso Buco Milanese


1/4 C Olive Oil
4 Veal Shanks
Flour
3 Tb Butter
1/2 C Onion, diced
1/3 C Carrot, diced
1/3 C Celery, diced
1/2 tsp Garlic, minced
2 Lemon Peel Strips
1/2 C White Wine
1/4 C Beef Broth
1/4 C Water
3/4 C Tomato, chopped
1/8 tsp Thyme
1 Bay Leaf
2 Parsley Sprigs
1 Oz Dry Porcini Mushrooms
TT S&P

Add the oil to the pot and heat it. Dust the shanks with flour, shaking off any excess. Place the shanks into the pot in one layer. Brown the shanks deeply all over. Remove to a plate, drain excess oil from the pot.

Melt the butter and sweat the onion, carrots and celery on medium for 6-7 minutes.

Add the garlic and lemon peel and cook for another 2-3 minutes.

Add the wine and deglaze the pot, reducing the wine by half.

Heat the broth and water and add it to the pot along with the tomato, thyme, bay leaf, parsley mushrooms, salt and pepper.

The liquid should come two thirds of the way up the side of the shanks. If it does not, add more broth and water.

Bring the liquid to a simmer, cover and place into the lower half of a 350 F. oven. Turn and baste the shanks every 20 minutes. Cook for 2 hours or until the shanks are very tender and a creamy dense sauce has formed.

When the shanks are done, remove them to a platter and reduce the sauce, if necessary, to thicken. Remove the strings before serving.

The word for dog in Spanish is perro, and in Japanese it's inu - and neither have anything to do with Osso Buco!

Osso Buco is Italian ... osso means "bone" and buco means "hole" - in context it means a bone with a hole in it (a marrow bone). Shank bones are cut into about 1-inch thick pieces and braised for a long time ... this allows the otherwise worthless cut of meat to be used for a sumptuous meal.

This, like coq au vin from France, started off as peasant food ... but in the trendy foodie world today ... these once thrown away pieces of meat are now in demand and expensive gourmet cuts! Well - at least here in the States.

Andy M.'s recipe is close to what I use ... here are some other recipes.
