osso buco


veal shanks braised in tomatoes & wine until tender and falling off the bone. this is a hearty italian recipe that seems to please everyone. it is good served with any starch. rice, potatoes, polenta, pasta or crusty rolls. i have done this with plain steamed rice, but last night served it with risotto milanese which is risotto w parmesan cheese and saffron. very tasty. osso buco means "hollow bones" in italian and is served all over italy, but purportedly comes from milan.
