New This Month

Loosely translated from Italian, osso buco means "bone with a hole." The meat that circles the bone is sweet and tender; the marrow inside the bone is creamy and rich.

Cook's Notes

Ask your butcher for four veal shanks of similar size, each of them tied so the meat is secured to the bone. The initial searing of the meat is essential to the outcome of this dish. Take your time, and don't let the pieces touch in the pan while you're browning them.

    Great recipe. Made it exactly as is, was fantastic. Have also substituted pot roast and many other cuts of beef. Vegetarian version adding white beans and kale and more of the mushroom liquid. Have served it with polenta laced with blue cheese and roasted garlic mashed. Good for large batches and freezes beautifully. (I hope someone gets the Steel Magnolia's reference.)

      Can I make this the night ahead and reheat to serve for dinner guests - I hate cooking while the guests are having drinks
