I have only made Osso Bucco with veal so I was excited to try out this recipe. The end result was a rich-and-creamy dish that I served with hand-picked herbs, mash and gremolata. It delivered a fresh-and-savoury combination worth noting – and it went well with a glass of fine wine!

Woodview Wagyu “OSSO BUCCO” with Gremolata

Yields: 8-10 portions

Ingredients:

  • 250gr ‘Parma’ Ham or any other good quality Ham

Increase the heat, bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to a simmer for about 2 hours, or until the meat is tender but not falling off the bone. Add the tomatoes after an hour of cooking, and the leeks in the last 5 minutes.
