Meal Description

Ossobuco is the classic Milanese (meaning, of Milan, Italy) dish of braised cross-cut veal shanks.  The word Ossobuco, actually means “Bone with a Hole” referring to the marrow at the center of the cross cut shank.  The shank contains a high concentration of connective tissue due to its constant exercise, requiring cooking for a long time to break it down into gelatin. This is why Ossobuco is such a flavorful, "meaty" dish.  We will Sous Vide the shanks for 12-hours.  The braising liquid contains tomatoes, aromatics (mirepoix, herbs), and veal stock, which creates a flavorful sauce for the veal.  

Ossobuco is traditionally serviced with Risotto Alla Milanese, or Saffron Sisotto.  Saffron, the most expensive spice in the world at about $5,000/lb, comes from the stamens of the crocus flower.  The flower only blooms for one week during the year and yields only 3 stamens, which are picked by hand.  While it is more expensive than gold, a pinch of Saffron threads weight next to nothing.  The Saffron has a wonderfully distinct flavor with a sophisticated sweetness and is strongly associated with mediterranean cooking.  

Lastly, the Ossobucco will be garnished with a Gremolata.  A Gremolata is a combination of garlic, lemon juice, lemon zest, and parsley and is traditionally used with braises to provide a  balance of fresh flavors to offset the braise which cooks over a long period of time.  (It’s also really good on fish).
