Expert Tips

Veal shanks are not always available, so check with your butcher to place an order ahead if necessary. You'll also find this succulent Milan masterpiece on restaurant menus under the name ossobuco or ossibuchi, which means "a hollowed bone."

If your family prefers beef to veal, go ahead and use beef shank cross cuts. Check with your butcher if you don't see them in the meat case.

This dish is often served with a refreshing condiment called gremolata. It is easy to make. Just mix 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley, a finely chopped clove of garlic and 1 teaspoon grated lemon peel. Pass the gremolata at the table to sprinkle on each serving.
