Beef osso bucco beef shank shanks

Sliced beef shank (or beef osso bucco) are nutrient-packed power foods that we truly enjoy around here. So, when Jenn brought us her Osso Bucco recipe, we were more than happy to try it out. This one is simple to follow, rich, and oh-so tender! It’s definitely worth a try any day of the week.
