A traditional Osso Bucco with Gremolata


  • Toss the Osso Bucco in lightly seasoned flour. Then brown in a thin layer of hot oil. Remove.
  • Heat a little fresh oil with the butter in another heavy-bottomed pan and gently sauté the onion and 2 crushed garlic cloves until softish.
  • Then add the wine, bay leaves, allspice, cinnamon and seasonings. Stir and reduce the liquid by about half.
  • Return the veal to the pan in one layer, pour the hot stock over and bring to the boil. Then turn the heat down, cover and cook very gently for about 45 mins until the meat is tender, turning it now and then.
  • When ready, remove the Osso Bucco and add 1 grated garlic clove, the lemon zest and parsley to the pan. Stir well and taste for seasoning.
  • Arrange the Osso Bucco on individual plates, spoon the sauce over the top and serve with mash on the side.
