Veal shanks braised in tomatoes & wine until tender and falling off the bone. This is a hearty Italian recipe that seems to please everyone. It is good served with any starch. Rice, potatoes, polenta, pasta or crusty rolls. I have done this with plain steamed rice, but last night served it with Risotto Milanese which is Risotto w parmesan cheese and saffron. Very tasty. Osso Buco means "hollow bones" in Italian and is served all over Italy, but purportedly comes from Milan.
