This week we are offering a modern twist to a classic Milanese dish. In place of the expensive and tough-to-find veal shank, we're substituting ZZ grass fed cross-cut beef shank. For only $6.00 per lb., marrow-filled cross-cut beef shanks give the dish an incredibly robust, meaty richness. You only need about 2 lbs and we are in Turner Maine, making pickup or delivery convenient.
This Serious Eats Beef Osso Buco recipe makes it fall-apart tender and the slow cooker makes it easy. Serve as is, over rice or polenta... then pair it with a robust red wine and you have yourself a comforting and elegant dinner.
YIELD: Serves 4
ACTIVE TIME: 30 minutes
TOTAL TIME: 6 1/2 hours.
[Our InstaPot cooked it fork tender in 35 minutes and we paired it with cauliflower rice.]
