Ingredients

How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 275°F.
  • In a heavy ovenproof kettle large enough to hold veal shanks in one layer heat 1 tablespoon each of oil and butter over moderately high heat until foam begins to subside and sauté onion and celery until beginning to turn golden.
  • Pat shanks dry between paper towels and season with salt and pepper.
  • Arrange shanks on onion mixture and roast, covered tightly, in middle of oven 3 hours. (Meat will give off juices as it cooks.) Shanks may be prepared up to this point 1 day ahead and cooled, uncovered, before chilling, covered. Reheat shanks before proceeding.)
  • Cut mushrooms into 1/4-inch-thick slices.
  • In a large skillet heat remaining 2 tablespoons each of oil and butter over moderately high heat until foam begins to subside and sauté mushrooms with thyme and salt and pepper to taste, stirring, until mushrooms begin to give off their liquid.
  • Stir in vermouth or wine and lemon juice and cook, stirring, until all but about 1/3 cup liquid is evaporated.
  • Mushrooms may be made 1 day ahead and cooled completely before chilling, covered.
  • Transfer shanks to a platter and keep warm.
  • Transfer onions, celery, and pan juices to a blender with 1/2 cup water and purée until smooth, adding more water if necessary to thin sauce to desired consistency.
  • Pour sauce into a saucepan and stir in mushroom mixture, vinegar, and salt and pepper to taste.
  • Heat sauce over moderate heat until heated through and stir in parsley.

    My FIL raved about osso bucco when he was alive. Unfortunately, he passed before we had a chance to accompany him to his favorite greek restaurant to try this dish. I'll have to make this in his honor sometime soon. This recipe looks like it is packed full of levels of flavor.

    Had this today. It was so rich, tender and delicious. I used a crisp white wine. I like it when a recipe just falls into place. Short quick recipes have their place, but ones with awesome end results; take some effort. I served this with mashed potatoes and your creamy biscuits..I added chives to your biscuit recipe for an nice herbed biscuit :>)
