Slow Cooked Osso Bucco

  • 4-6 Grass fed Osso Bucco
  • 2 tbs Tallow
  • 2 Brown onion - diced
  • 4 Garlic cloves - chopped
  • 4 carrots - chopped
  • 1 celery - chopped
  • 600mls Beef bone broth
  • 400mls Tin Toms
  • 2 tsp Oregano
  • 2 Bay leaf
  • 2 tsp Thyme
  • Sea salt
  • Black pepper

The words Osso Bucco has been on my culinary landscape since I was tiny. I remember my dad ordering this strange-sounding dish at restaurants, never really understanding what he was ordering.  Fast forward a few years and I love cooking this rich slow-cooked dish.  It’s packed with flavour and I throw heaps of veggies and herbs in to get a robust, complex dinner.

Slow-cooked dishes give you so much bang for your buck I reckon.  firstly the cut of meat is usually cheaper than a primo cut like a ribeye, but also the flavour is much richer too.  Couple that with the ease…. it’s almost impossible to overcook, as opposed to cooking a ribeye where the margin for error is so much greater.  You can literally prep the dish in the morning and set-and-forget and return home from work with your home filled with the scent of a delicious, comforting dish.

Here’s how it rolled:

  • Pre heat the oven to 250C
  • In a large fry pan heat the 1 tbs fat on a med/high heat
  • Add the meat and brown off, turning to ensure all is browned
  • Transfer to a oven proof dish
  • In a fry pan heat the remaining fat and sauté the onion and garlic for 3-4 minutes on a low heat
  • Add the celery, carrots and herbs and stir for a further 3-4 minutes, coating the ingredients with the herbs – add more butter if needs be.
  • Remove from the heat and transfer to the oven proof dish along with the beef
  • Add all the remaining ingredients and gentle combine
  • Pop the lid on and throw it in the oven
  • Reduce heat to 140C
  • Cook for 2 -2 ½ hours or until meat falls off the bone
  • Remove from the heat
  • Season accordingly

Happy Cooking!
