About this cut
A classic Italian cut that is traditionally braised in red wine with garlic and aromatics. These cross cut shanks are netted beautifully so that they won't fall apart until they get into your mouth. You haven't lived until you've eaten Rose Veal Marrow from the center of these bones. Cut ~2" thick.
Other names for this cut: Veal Shanks
Basic Cooking Technique
Braise low and slow with netting intact; remove netting with scissors before serving.

Cooked 4 veal Osso Bucco just now as a Mothers Day dinner, following the G & B recipe. Some comments: basically excellent, beginning with the meat, which was first-class. The prep time is WAY more than indicated - just thoroughly searing four (or more) pieces of meat takes a long time. Allow altogether at least an hour's prep time, possibly more. I was a bit flexible with ingredients, especially the tomato-based additions - used some exotic ketchup and even some left-over pizza sauce! All worked well. The whole dish took closer to four hours in the oven before the meat was really soft. Finally, three lemons is far too much for the amount of zest needed for the gremolata!! But the end result was awesomely delicious!
We have had both the beef and the veal Osso Bucco. Both are just superbly wonderful cuts of meat, impeccably delivered! Take time and care over preparation, and they result in beautifully flavoured meals! Actually, each piece of meat may be enough for two people.
Packs & Weights
Our frozen meats are packaged in vacuum-sealed packs. Most packs contain one piece (ie, one Brisket). Some packs will contain two pieces (ie, Lamb Chops). Packs of smaller items, such as Chicken Wings or Pepper Steak, will contain multiple pieces.
These vacuum-sealed packs are generally packed in a cardboard box. If there is an option to choose how many packs you'd like in the box, you'll make that choice under "Number of Packs". Then you'll choose the total weight of the box (that is, the combined weight of all the the packs in that box).
Example: Lamb Chops
Let's say you're ordering Lamb Chops and you select the following:
You've chosen: 2 packs, ~1.9lbs, and the price shows as $60.78.
You’ll receive 1 box, with 2 packs of lamb chops inside. The whole thing will weigh approximately ~1.9lbs and will cost $60.78.
Each pack will contain 2 lamb chops, and weigh approximately .95lbs.
You’ll have 4 lamb chops in total. Each will weigh approximately .475lbs (note that one may be slightly larger and one slightly smaller).
Weight Ranges & Prices
To keep our fulfillment system practical and manageable, products with variable weights are sold in a weight range (this includes most frozen meats, with the exception of deli meats, sausages and beef jerky). We keep the ranges as small as practically possible to minimize the variation you might receive. If a price/lb is shown with a *, it is an estimate for comparison purposes only, since the price associated with each weight is the price for all items within that weight range.
This chart shows the weight ranges for all our products:
