Smoked and braised Osso Buco is a real joy. A relatively cheap cut with an amazingly deep flavour giving you a whole heap of vitamins and a self created thick delicious sauce.
It’s also a pretty tough cut so definitely suits a low-and-slow approach taking particularly well to braising.
If you’re serving for supper, start just before lunch. No need to be particular careful, smoke the osso buco, throw in the rest of the ingredients adding any herbs you’ve got at hand in the garden. Leave to cook for the rest of the day and eat as late as you like!
