Winter Supper

Osso buco, literally "bone with a hole,'' is the Italian term for veal shanks. This meaty cut, akin to beef shanks or lamb shanks, becomes meltingly tender when stewed for several hours in a covered pot. Our goal was to create a recipe that guaranteed perfectly tender meat with rich flavor. We serve it with a simple and satisfying polenta.
