Osso Buco

Delicious! This was so easy to make. Thanks to the slow cooker.

I picked up a package of 2 veal shanks at Ferraro's for $5.09. We were off to a good start.
I found this recipe online at They gave directions for stove top and the slow cooker. I opted for the slow cooker.

2 veal shanks
1/4 teaspoon of salt, divided
1/2 tsp black pepper
2 tbsp flour
1 tbsp olive oil
1 cup carrots, cut up to resemble baby carrots
1 cup chopped onions
1 cup chopped celery
1/3 cup Marsala Wine
1 14oz can fat-free beef broth

Sprinkle veal shanks evenly with 1/8 tsp salt and 1/2 tsp pepper. Dredge in flour and shake off excess.

Heat 1 tbsp olive oil in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add veal shanks and cook 5 minutes on each side or until browned. Remove the veal from the pan and place in slow cooker. I hope you are using the slow cooker liners.

Add the carrots, onion, and celery to the Dutch oven and saute for 6 minutes. Place vegetables in the slow cooker.

Add the remaining 1/8 tsp salt, Marsala wine, and broth to the slow cooker. Cover with lid. Cook on HIGH for 1 hour. Reduce heat to LOW. Cook for 5 hours.

We served this over rice. Very nice!
