Ossobuco Nostrano


8 shanks 3-4 inches – if loose tie up with string

½ cup olive oil

2 cups onion chopped  and ½ cup for rice

1 cup flour

2 cups celery chopped

2 cups carrot chopped

5 cloves garlic chopped and 1 clove for rice

½ cup parsley

Salt and pepper

Few bay leaves

2 cups white wine

1 quart chicken or veal stock (obtained with chicken or veal bones, onion, celery carrots and strained)

2 cups tomatoes chopped (raw)

Good pinch of saffron (for rice)


For the ossobuco:

Season the flour with salt and pepper.  Dredge the shanks in the seasoned flour and then sauté the shanks in the hot oil on all sides.  Lay the shanks in a 4 inch deep aluminum pan.  Add celery, onions, garlic, bay leaves, tomatoes, 1 cup of wine, ½ quart of stock.  Add some salt and pepper.  Cover all with aluminum foil making sure not much air goes out of the pan.  Cook in oven for 1 hour 15 minutes at 375 degrees.  Should take 1:15 to cook, sometimes longer or shorter – you should peak to see if there is liquid (add if dry) and try if cooked.  When done, pass all the veggies in pan to become semi-liquid-like sauce.  Serve the ossobuco and cover with that sauce.


For the rice:

2 cups arborio

1 cup white wine

2 cups stock (remaining)


½ cups chopped onions

1 garlic clove chopped

½ cup olive oil

Heat oil in pot.  Add onions, garlic salt and pepper.  Start to cook rice – add stock, stirring constantly till the rice is cooked.  Add saffron and wine.  Serve it on side or on the bottom of shank.
