1/2 c. port wine
2 T. chopped pars­ley

“Mike Roy was a chef who shared recipes on the radio and wrote cook­books many years ago.” Slow Cook­er Veal Osso Buco comes from his cook­book of crock­ery cook­ing. This is a deli­cious dish, fit for com­pa­ny! And Mike says “to be sure to spoon out the mar­row from the bones”!

  1. In this area you gen­er­al­ly find veal shanks cut in slices approx­i­mate­ly 1–1/2 inch­es thick. About 9 of these slices will fit in a 4-quart slow cook­er.
  2. Dredge these shank slices in flour. Heat 1 table­spoon each of oil and but­ter in a skil­let and brown a few shanks at a time on all sides; do not crowd slices. Add addi­tion­al oil and but­ter as need­ed through­out brown­ing process. Do not omit this step of brown­ing the shanks — this devel­ops a much bet­ter fla­vor for the osso buco dish.
  3. Remove shanks and place in the slow cook­er as brown­ing is com­plet­ed. When all shanks are browned, pour remain­ing ingre­di­ents into the skil­let and stir to blend and to loosen the browned bits that remain.
  4. Pour this mix­ture over the meat, option­al adding car­rots at this time.
  5. Cov­er. Cook on Low for 7 to 8 hours.
  6. Remove shanks from liq­uid, and, if the sauce is too thin, boil to reduce it. Or thick­en it with a lit­tle roux (but­ter and flour mixed togeth­er). The anchovies will have melt­ed into the sauce.

Serve shanks on a bed of hot cooked noo­dles or rice topped with the sauce.

Hap­py Crock­ing!
