Going to Europe, the hubby and I fell in love with different regional foods and love trying new things. We went to Costco and saw a packaged dinner called Ossobuco and thought that we would try it. It was delicious and this is our rendition of what we found.

  2. Heat a large Dutch oven over medium heat and put in enough olive oil to cover the bottom of the pan. Add the butter and mix it to melt. Sear the veal shanks, turning carefully with tongs, until all sides are brown. Put a little more oil, if needed. Remove the browned veal shanks to a side plate. There will be drippings in the bottom of the pot, you will be using this for your sauce.
  3. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  4. Using the same pot and the drippings, saute the onions, celery, carrots, lemon zest, garlic, bay leaves, and parsley over medium heat. Cook the vegetables down till they start to get some color and develop a deep, rich fragrence. season with salt and pepper, add a little oil if needed. Add the veal shanks back into the pot. Pour in the wine and let it simmer for 20 minutes, till the wine has reduced by half. Add the beef broth and tomatioes and stir everything together. Cover the pot and put it in the oven. Braise for 1 1/2 hours. Then remove the cover and continue to cook an additional 30 minutes. The sauce will be thick and the veal tender and falling off the bone.
  5. Take a pot of boiling water and salt it. Put the noodles in and boil on medium for 7 minutes. Drain.
  6. Make a bed on the plate of cooked egg noodles. Place one veal shank and some of the gravy over the shank and noodles.
