Ricardo's Recipe : Osso Buco




  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C).
  2. Dust the veal slices with flour. In a large pot, brown the meat on both sides in the olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. Remove from the pan and set aside on a plate. In the same pot, soften the onions. Add more oil as needed. Deglaze with the white wine. Add the meat and remaining ingredients. Lightly season with salt and pepper.
  3. Bring to a boil, cover and transfer to the oven. Bake for 45 minutes. Reduce the oven to 325°F (165 °C) and bake for 1 hour. Adjust the seasoning.


  1. In a bowl, combine all of the ingredients. Spread over the meat. Serve with orzo and zucchini ribbons, if desired.


A quick and easy side for Osso buco:
Cook orzo until al dente. Orzo is a short pasta that resembles grains of rice and is easily found in most supermarkets. Reserve some of the orzo cooking water. Toss the cooked orzo with olive oil and some reserved cooking water. Add the zest and juice of 1 lemon. Simple and delicious! You can follow the same steps with any pasta of your choice and can add Parmesan cheese to taste.

For the gremolata, a mixture of orange and lemon zest also works well.

  1. I made this for the first time last weekend and my family loved it! And with the leftover sauce, I added a can of white beans (rinsed of course) and made a delicious bean stew for the next day....again a huge hit! Will definitely make this again!

  2. Basically that is the same as my Mom's recipe that she brought over form Italy, only I used Marsala instead of wine. When reduced is it sweeter tan the wine. Also, I made some nice cheesy Polenta that i spread on the dish before laying the Osso Bco on top.

  3. Completley ruined my milk fed veal. The tomatoe is way to strong for the delicate flavor of veal. Do not use this recipe. I usually like ricardo recipes but for this one, just pass and find your self something else anything else. Even with no experience u can make something better than this.

  4. Easy to prepare and delicious.

  5. I love how easy this recipe is, and with everyday ingredients! It's one of my husband and son's favourite meal. Each time I make it their faces light up. :D

  6. Loved this recipe! It was easy and had was light and favourful. My family loved it too. On my list of go-to recipes now!

  7. My husband always orders Osso Buco in restaurants and this is the first time I have made it at home. We both LOVED it. He says best he has ever had. Made the full recipe so have another meal in the freezer to look forward to. Keeper!!

  8. I've never made osso buco before and this recipe was super easy, and the end result was great! I highly recommend using good quality wine and canned tomatoes (san marzano).

  9. Second time making Osso Buco and I used this recipe instead of a pressure cooking version and I think the time is worth it. The PC version is good if you don't have the time, but this recipe is amazing if you got the time. The marrow is amazing to spread on your ciabatta!

  10. My first time making, and eating, Osso Buco. Absolutely delicious. My dinner guests who had had it before said it's the best they've ever had.

  11. Made this recipe for the first time and it was delicious. For sure I will be making it again. Thanks so much Ricardo!

  12. Made osso bucco for the first time for a dinner party. Followed recipe except replaced one of the onions with 1/3 of large fennel bulb and it was fantastic - merci Ricardo!!

  13. So good! And this is what we are having today for dinner. Grazie!

  14. What is obviously missing is rosemary. Thyme makes the dish taste off so I did not use it the second time. I used chicken broth instead of beef broth. Very delicious!

  15. Excellent .je vais refaire a coup sure.merci pour la belle recette
