Our cross-cut elk shanks, or Osso Bucco, are one of the most flavorful portions of meat on the elk (or any animal for that matter). While too tough for quick cooking methods, braising these elk Osso Bucco in flavorful liquids, renders them fall-apart tender and practically bursting with bold meaty flavor. Supplied by one of the foremost gourmet meat purveyors on the market, Broadleaf, our elk, are sourced from the lush New Zealand countryside, where the animals are raised on small sustainable farms. Given ample room to graze and grow, these elk Osso Bucco boast all the complexity and nuance of wild game meat while maintaining a much more tender texture and a subtle flavor profile that’s in no way ‘gamey.’
Sold in packs of three, these enormous 12-ounce cuts are each roughly 2-inches in width. Larger than the fore, our hind shanks are favored for the generous amount of meat on each bone. Thanks to the elk's incredible size, these delicious shanks will yield enough portions for the whole family to enjoy!
One of Italy’s most famous dishes, Osso Bucco, is the classic Mialense approach to transforming tough veal shanks into a meltingly soft and savory dish you’re sure to love. Translating roughly to ‘hole in the bone’ or ‘pierced bone.’ This apropos moniker denotes the plainly visible shank bone in this dish and the treasure within. Arguably the best part, ‘the hole,’ contains the deeply delicious and nutritious bone marrow. This tried-and-true favorite gets that much better (and bigger) when made from our flavorful elk shanks. Don't wait another minute, our premium elk shanks, and all our other gourmet meats, are just a click away at Gourmet Food Store!
