Veal Shanks/Osso Bucco


~ 4 Veal shanks, center bone, cut into 8-10 oz. portions
~ Salt and freshly ground black pepper
~ 3 TBSP olive oil
~ 2 TBSP unsalted butter
~ 1 lg. onion, diced, about 1 cup
~ 1 cup diced carrots
~ 1 cup diced celery
~ 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
~ 1 cup dry white wine
~ Juice & zest of 1 lemon
~ Juice & zest of 1 lime
~ 1 28 oz. can crushed tomatoes
~ 2 cans (10.5 oz.) beef broth
~ 1 TSP dry thyme
~ 2 bay leaves


Season the veal with salt and pepper. Heat the olive oil and butter together in a large, heavy skillet and sear the veal shanks over high heat on all sides until well browned, about 10 minutes. Remove the browned veal shanks from the skillet and place them in an ovenproof casserole. To the same skillet to which you browned the veal add the diced vegetables, along with the garlic and saute them for 3-4 minutes. Add citrus items and wine, deglaze and add remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil and pour over shanks in the casserole. Place in a 350 degree oven and let cook for 2-2 1/2 hours. Serve with your pasta.




~ 4-5 Lb. Boned & Butterflied Leg Of Lamb
~ Garnish: 6 Sprigs Fresh Rosemary
~ 1 Small Onion, Finely Chopped
~ 6 Cloves Garlic, Minced
~ 2 Tsp. Dried Rosemary
~ Pared Rind And Juice Of 1 Lemon
~ 1 Cup Red Wine
~ 1 Tsp. Salt


Combine marinade ingredients in a glass or stainless steel dish (avoid aluminum), just large enough to accommodate the lamb. Place the meat in the marinade, turn to coat all sides, cover the dish with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 24 hours. Turn lamb occasionally. When preparing the meal, preheat the broiler; broil meat about 4 inches from the flame. Broil 15 to 20 minutes on each side or until a meat thermometer reads 145 degrees for medium-rare and 150 for medium. Brush lamb with marinade frequently during broiling. Garnish with fresh rosemary and serve with roasted vegetables and warm garlic bread.
