How to Make Traditional Osso Buco

- Coat the veal shanks with flout.
- Melt butter in a large skillet. Heat it to medium high heat.
- Add veal to the skillet and cook until it looks brown on the outside.
- Remove to a bowl and keep it warm.
- Add some cloves of crushed garlic and onion to the skillet. Heat and stir until the onion is just about tender.
- Return the veal to a pan. Mix carrot and wine. Simmer this for about 10 minutes.
- Pour the tomatoes and beef stock, season them with salt and pepper. Simmer this over low heat for about 1 ½ hours, pouring juices over the veal every 15 minutes. It is important to ensure that the meat should be cooked until tender, and should not slide off the bone.
- In a separate bowl, mix parsley, garlic and lemon together. Sprinkle the mixture over the mixture before serving. Enjoy!
