Osso Buco

Today was my first attempt at cooking veal.  I purchased the veal shanks from QFS and suffered from sticker shock.  I actually removed the price tag  from the package so Jerry wouldn’t see it and have a stroke.

I prepared the vegetables in the morning-  After browning the veal I added the vegetables followed by garlic and lemon zest.  This is an easy recipe to prepare for company because everything can be prepared in advance and popped in the oven.

I have to admit that this was good quality meat.

This fed four people and there were no leftovers.  It was easy to prepare and there were no  strange ingredients.  Although it was good, I didn’t think it was any better than Ina’s recipe for lamb shanks with orzo.  In that recipe I substituted beef short ribs for the lamb and would definitely make that again.
