Osso Buco with Julienned Vegetables


by: Cooking Granny

Just a fancy name for veal shanks, osso buco usually comes in thick, meaty slices that have a marrowbone in the middle. If you were to sauté them like a steak, they would be unbearably tough. But when they are braised, they soften and release their delicious flavor. Virtually all braised meat dishes - stews and pot roasts - include aromatic vegetables for flavor that are often strained out before serving. In this version of osso buco, the vegetables are julienned, added midway during caaking, and then served in a melting tangle on top of each serving. If you don't want to bother with julienning the vegetables, you can dice or slice them. Makes 6 main-course servings.
