OSSOBUCO ALLA MILANESE - Braised Veal Shank Milanese style - Suitable for 2 People - average 800/900g
*WITH MASH POTATO AS SIDE DISH*
“L’oss bus a la milanesa” as it’s called in Milan, the fashion and design capital of Lombardy and northern Italy, is one of the most venerated recipes in Milanese culinary tradition. Like lasagne in Bologna, brasato in Turin, and Baccalà mantecato in Venice, Osso Buco alla milanese is a cherished trademark of Milan
Osso Buco alla milanese is particularly popular in the winter, when its rich and filling qualities are especially appreciated. In centuries past, the posterior leg of veal, cut into slices across the bone (called ossobuchi, plural form in Italian), would have been affordable only on special occasions by the middle-class Milanese families. The famous Osso Buco alla milanese recipe as we know it today was probably created by the private cooks of the affluent bourgeoisie, or perhaps was an invention of one of the renowned chefs working in the city. The culinary legacy of this period is described in “Vecchia Milano a tavola” (Old Milan, at the Table)
The essential secret of Osso Buco alla milanese is patience and simplicity. It is a great example of a “piatto unico,” meaning a dish that is nearly a whole meal on its own: succulent meat accompanied by “golden rice,” as rice with saffron was first called (occasionally polenta is served instead of rice).
