Osso Bucco

I know I have written about this recipe before but this time it was exceptionally delicious. I prepare veal shanks almost the same way as oxtails. In this instance instead of using sofrito I used diced red tomatoes, garlic and white wine. I think browning the lightly floured and seasoned meat prior to slow cooking in this dish is especially important, as is deglazing the pan with a little wine and/or broth and adding to crockpot. I also made a very simple marinara sauce that, when the shanks were cooked (six hours on high in the crock pot), I infused with about a cup of the sauce from the crockpot. I served this dish over cappellini, which really complimented the complexity and richness of the main dish.

Enjoy!
