The most delicious ossobuco recipes

Recipes for ossobuco prepared several different ways

The ossobuco recipe is a traditional Italian dish. This dish, which is also commonly referred to as 'Ossobuco alla Milanese', has its origins in Milan. Veal shanks serve as the basis of ossobuco. It is, in a sense, a casserole with veal, onions, carrot and celery. Marrow from the bone gives the sauce more flavour and consistency.  Since ossobuco recipes are so popular, we have chosen several ways of preparing it for you.

Ossobuco with ribbon pasta

A traditional Italian dish would, of course, not be complete without pasta. Ossobuco and ribbon pasta go perfectly together in this recipe. Together with the delicious sauce of vegetables, wine and marrow, the lemon also adds a fresh touch to it. There are, however, tomatoes in this recipe, and these are not part of the traditional Milanese recipe. 

Oven-baked ossobuco

Oven dishes are a favourite in this weather, which is why oven-baked ossobuco should not be missed. You do not need to use very much fat, or none at all, when cooking veal in an oven. A risotto with olives and tapenade is the perfect complement to this recipe.
