Easy Osso Bucco!

Osso Bucco is a delicious meal, perfect for autumn and winter months as it is hearty, filling and great with roasted vegetables or mashed potatoes.

Traditionally, Osso Bucco was made with cross-cut veal shanks, and the term ‘ossobucco‘ is Italian for ‘bone with a hole’. Here at Cheale Meats, our speciality is pork and we have made it with centre-cut pieces of shin of pork which is absolutely divine!
