Osso Bucco

Share This Post

Traditionally, osso bucco is made with veal shanks, but it is also possible to make it with beef shanks. The beef shanks are cut in a similar way to the veal shanks and have a similar marrow-filled bone in the center. However, beef shanks are generally larger and have more connective tissue, so they require a longer cooking time to become tender.

To prepare osso bucco with beef, the beef shanks are typically browned in a Dutch oven or other heavy pot, and then braised in a mixture of beef broth, tomatoes, onions, carrots, celery, and herbs, similar to the traditional veal version. The beef shanks are typically cooked low and slow, often for several hours, until the meat is tender and falling off the bone.

Beef osso bucco has a rich and meaty flavor and can be served with a variety of accompaniments, such as risotto, polenta, or mashed potatoes. It is a hearty and satisfying dish that is perfect for cooler weather or special occasions.
