      The French Dry Rub sets this osso bucco way above other osso bucco recipes I've made. Did make some changes, tho. I used 8 shanks, 2 carrots, only about a cup of red wine and did not add the fresh rosemary/thyme (tho I had them handy) during cooking. I didn't want to risk overpowering the great flavor of the rub. After browning the shanks, I removed them and sauteed the veggies quite a while till caramelized. After all was put together, I very-slow cooked it - several hours - then took out the shanks, defatted the liquid and thickened it with a flour/water mix. Removing the meat for a while tends to firm it up, which I like. Makes lots of gravy and I am plotting to incorporate the leftover as an experimental soup-base. Thanks, Diana!

      30 minutes simmering is nowhere near enough time for Osso Bucco to cook. The sauce is excellent, but you need a lot more cooking time for this recipe.

      I've made this recipe (as with everyone else, I tweek it to my preference) several times and have enjoyed it immensely. As a matter of fact, my picky eater is CRAZY about it. And her father's eyes glaze over when I announce we're having Osso Bucco. THANKS!!
