Osso Buco over Risotto alla Milanese


Recommended Posts

I thought long and hard on what to cook for this month’s challenge. Once we got back from vacation I had quite a bit of work to catch up on so this was the first time I had to physically do the cook. As they say “better late than never” so here we go.

 

First I made up some baguettes for garlic toast. Link:

Then I made up some Risotto alla Milanese. Link:

Now I went about making the Osso Buco. Here are most the ingredients. (Not shown are the garlic, Rosemary and Thyme)

And the beef shanks.

I tied them up with some butchers twine, seasoned them with salt and then coated with flour.

And seared them in my new enameled Dutch oven.

I set them aside and sautéed my veggies.

Once they had start to wilt I added some tomato paste and stirred it in and cooked for 1 minute.

Now I added 1 cup of white wine and let it cook for 1 minute.

Now I added the oregano, thyme, Rosemary, bay leaf, crushed tomatoes, chicken / beef stock and the beef shanks and brought it to a boil.

I then placed it on the kamado at 325 for 2.5 hours.

When it was ready I made up the Gremolata garnish. (Parsley, Garlic & lemon zest finely miced)

Here it is everything plated with a nice red wine.

I had my first Osso Buco in Italy on the Northern shores of Lake Como, almost in Switzerland. Mine were pork shanks and I fell in love with the dish.

 

Yours looks comparable DerHusker, well done! 

Thank you 75tranzam. That is a very nice compliment.

Windows 10 won't let me use emojis here, so I have to spell out a big ​Three Thumbs Up!!! 

Beautiful cook, Der Husker.  It looks absolutely delicious.

Thank you Jack. I can see the emojis in my mind. :)
