There are some meals that require a bit of labor and time, but in the end, they are so worth it. Osso Buco is one of those things. While it requires a bit of slow cooking time, the end results are a beautiful veal shank with meat that is falling off of the bone and utterly delicious.
Veal is one of my favorite meats because of its velvety texture that compliments luxurious sauces. It is moist and tender, which makes it extremely popular among famous French, Italian, and cosmopolitan chefs. Veal is naturally a low calorie protein and packed with nutrients. It is extremely versatile and is delicious pan fried, grilled, broiled, or even slow cooked.
My favorite brand of veal, Cedar Springs, is raised right here in the U.S. on family owned ranches by farmers that put care and expertise into producing homegrown veal- and you can certainly taste it! The Mountain State Rosen Veal Growers take extremely good care of the animals-feeding them the most wholesome, nutritious diet; minimizing stress and provide health maintenance and safe housing for the animals.
If you have never had a Bahn Mi sandwich, then you are missing out. The spicy and sweet combination is fantastic. Pair that with fresh crunchy veggies, cilantro, and some sliced jalapeño all served on crusty french bread, and you have one delectable sandwich.
However, while all of the sandwich fixings add delicious freshness to the sandwich, it is the slow cooked Osso Buco that really steals the limelight. The meat is perfectly browned then simmered in a delicious sweet soy sauce broth that cooks down into a smooth and silky sauce. On its own, the Osso Buco is mouthwateringly delicious, but paired with the Bahn Mi sandwich fixings it is unforgettingly divine.
