Veal Osso Bucco is a circular cut of meat sourced from the legs. Masterfully cut to produce a clean, aesthetically modern look with a bone in the center and meat surrounding it. Thanks to their youth and high grain diet, our veal boasts excellent marbling, adding a juicy tenderness that other shanks don’t have.
The hind shanks are a popular favorite among Osso Bucco lovers due to their larger size and higher ratio of meat to bone. Already meatier, these 2.5-inch thick portions promise even more of what you love. A tall cut, the veal hind shanks from Le Quebecois look exceptional plated atop risotto or polenta with a drizzle of braising liquid.
What is Osso Bucco?
A classic Italian braising cut, Osso Bucco directly tansaltes to ‘hole of bone’, denoting the shank bone in its center. After hours of braising, the marrow in its center cooks down, revealing a hole in the bone and adding delicious full-bodied flavor to the dish. Gelatin adds body and a velvety viscosity to the braising liquid creating one of the most delightful sauces right in the pan during cooking. With its fall-off-the-bone tenderness and delicate yet delicious flavor profile veal shanks are the well-versed chef’s favorite choice.
