FarmEats Grass Fed Beef Osso Buco

As the days get shorter and we get closer to winter, we always love a rich braised dish such as FarmEats Grass Fed Beef Osso Buco!

While a traditional Milanese Osso Buco calls for veal shanks, (is it possible that some restaurants use beef or pork shanks rather than a more expensive veal shank?) we use 100% grass fed beef shanks for the richer flavors.
Also, we tend to not use flour in our cooking.

In any case, grass fed beef osso buco is a perfect wintery farmers market dish, as most local farmers still have some root vegetables and possibly (green house) tomatoes or other tomatoes will suffice.

We love braising slow and low, as you let the oven do the cooking work!

FarmEats Grass Fed Osso Buco;

Cut and dice the veggies; garlic, onions, carrots, potatoes, turnips, parsnips.

Preheat the oven to 285 degrees.
Sear the room temperature, FarmEats Grass Fed Beef Osso Buco in an oiled oven proof pan.  
Toss in the garlic and onions, and diced tomatoes.  
Add in liquid (until half way up the osso buco); wine, beef/pork/chicken stock and fresh spices (oregano/basil/thyme) + salt to taste. 

Bring to a simmer on the stove top. Place into the oven and set timer for an hour.  Then after the hour, turn over the osso buco, and braise for another hour repeat until osso buco is soft and falling off the bone- 3+ hours. 

Serve FarmEats Grass Fed Beef Osso Buco with polenta, risotto,
or a piece of crusty bread!
