Veal Osso Bucco with Gremolata


Here’s something I haven’t made in a long time.  Always so good.


Especially with fairly good looking veal marrow bones.


Veal Osso Bucco with Gremolata

6 veal shank slices

Salt and pepper


2 tbsp olive oil

1 tbsp butter

1 onion, chopped

3 large garlic cloves, finely chopped

3 carrots, diced

2 celery branches, diced

1/2 cup white wine

1 1/2 cup veal broth

1 1/2 cup diced tomatoes

1 bay leaf

1 handful of fresh parsley, chopped

1 zest of a whole lemon, grated

Juice from 1 lemon

Fleur de sel

Season the veal with salt and pepper, then dredge in flour and brown in the oil and butter.    Remove and set aside.  Add the onion, 2/3 garlic, carrots and celery to the pan and cook for about 5 minutes.  Add the wine and broth, then boil for about 5 minutes.  Add the tomatoes, bay leaf and veal, bring to a boil, cover and then simmer for about 1 1/2 hours.

Mix the parsley, remaining garlic and lemon zest together.

Place the veal on a serving platter, stir the lemon juice into the sauce then ladle over the meat.  Sprinkle with the gremolata and fleur de sel.  Serve with pasta or mashed potatoes.
