DIRECTIONS

  • Take shanks out of the refrigerator about 30 minutes before cooking to. Season meat well on both sides with freshly ground black pepper and sea salt. Using a fine sieve, dredge shanks with flour on both sides. Preheat oven to 350ºF.
  • In a large ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat, add oil and clarified butter. When hot, working in batches, place veal shanks in pan and brown on all sides; transfer on a plate. Reduce heat to medium and add 2 tablespoons clarified butter.
  • Add onion and sauté until soft, about 5 minutes. Three minutes later, add ¼ cup white wine, stir and cook for another 2 minutes. Transfer onions in a bowl; set aside. Add carrots and celery to the skillet and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until soft. Add garlic and sauté for 1 minute. Pour in the remaining white wine and also add Marsala. Scrape the bottom of the pan to dislodge any brown bits; cook for 2 minutes.
  • Add veal stock, chicken broth, diced tomatoes, thyme, rosemary and bay leaves. Gently stir the ingredients before returning onions back to the skillet; stir again. Carefully place veal shanks back to the pan with its juice and press gently to submerge the meat. Bring to a simmer, cover and transfer to preheated oven. Cook for 1 ½ hours and until meat is fork tender and falls off the bones Remove from the heat and serve immediately.
  • To serve; Spoon Orzo alla Milanese in each bowl, place an ossobuco on top, ladle braising juices and vegetable over meat and then finalize by sprinkling parsley and lemon zest.
