Osso Buco With Gremolata

Osso Buco With Gremolata created by AmandaInOz

This is my favorite Osso Buco. It seems like a lot of work, but it's well worth the effort. The classic garnish for osso buco is gremolata which is a mix of grated lemon zest, parsley and garlic. This recipe is in The Italian Collection cookbook from The Best of Food & Wine.

ingredients

directions

  • In a large flame proof casserole, melt the butter in the oil over moderate heat.
  • Dredge the veal in the flour and shake off any excess. Working in batches, saute veal on all sides until golden brown. Do not crowd the pan. Remove to a bowl.
  • Add the onions, carrots, celery and garlic. Cover and cook until vegetables are tender, about 15 minutes.
  • Place the veal on top of the vegetables, making sure the bones are upright. Sprinkle the marjoram, basil and thyme on top. Add the tomatoes, tomato paste, white wine, chicken stock, strips of lemon zest, bay leaf and parsley sprigs. If necessary, add enough water to cover the shanks.
  • Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low and simmer, covered, until the meat is tender, about 2 hours.
  • Transfer the veal shanks to a heated platter, remove the strings and cover with foil to keep warm. Increase the heat to high and boil, stirring frequently until the sauce is reduced by half, about 20 minutes. Pour the sauce over the meat.
  • Just before serving , combine the parsley, garlic and lemon zest to make the gremolata. Sprinkle over the top of the Osso Buco.
