Osso Buco Recipe

Osso Buco
  1. The very first step that you have to do is to allow your oven to preheat at about 325F.
  2. And after that, keep your dutch oven on the stove and let it heat for about 5 minutes. Add this Pancetta and let it cook while stirring it in between.
  3. After the Pancetta is ready, you will notice it has a crispy texture and has almost lost all its fats, cover it with a paper towel, and keep it aside.
  4. Now season the veal shanks with some salt and pepper. Coat them with some flour and add it to the pan.
  5. You will have to increase the heat and cook these shanks until they brown. And remove them once done.
  6. Now add the onions, celery and carrots to the oven and cook them until onions change their texture and look translucent. And cook along with garlic and thyme.
  7. Bring back these shanks to the pan and add some wine. Pour some stock so that half of Shanks are covered in it. Cook it on low heat and simmer it. Keep the pan in the oven, fully covered, and let the meat tender. It will take about an hour and a half.
  8. Prepare the gremolata sauce by mixing up parsley, lemon zest and garlic in a small bowl and you can serve it in a separate bowl.
