How to Make Osso Buco
Osso buco is the classic, northern Italian dish of slow-braised veal shank. In this video, you’ll learn how to make osso buco from scratch. We’ll take you through an easy step-by-step process, beginning with seasoning and browning the bone-in veal shanks. You’ll see how to prepare a fine mince of onions, carrots, and garlic to form the base of the rich sauce. The vegetables combine with wine, tomatoes, herbs, and the skillet-browned veal on the stovetop before being slowly braised in the oven. What emerges from the oven is luscious, fall-off-the-bone meat in a rich, delicious sauce. If you like, top the osso buco with a gremolata garnish of minced parsley, lemon peel, and garlic to give the dish bright flavor.
