Osso Bucco, Italian for “bone with a hole”, is a traditional Milanese dish of cross-cut veal shanks braised in white wine, stock, and flavoring vegetables. It is traditionally served with gremolata, which is an herb condiment that basically consisted of parsley, garlic, and lemon zest.
Though relatively cheap, shank is a very flavorful cut of beef if not the most. Braising, a cooking method of partly submerging meat in a flavored cooking liquid would be the best choice for tough cuts of meat such as our main component. Good news is, that braising can certainly be done with a slow cooker!

Hey, it’s for work, right?
