Classic Osso Buco is, of course, made with veal, but don't rule out using pork. It stills turns out very tender.
1 lb veal or pork shank slice
2 tsp flour
salt and pepper
2 tbsps olive oil
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 cup onion, chopped
1/2 cup chicken stock
2 tbsps tomato paste
1 tbsp parsley
Mix flour, salt and pepper and dredge the meat. Heat oil in a heavy frying pan and brown meat on both sides. Add onion and garlic and brown lightly.
Combine stock and tomato paste and add to the pan.
Cover and simmer 1 1/2 hours.
Serve with risotto and sprinkle with a little parsley.
I think I might have been Italian in another life : )

I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too!
