Osso Bucco with truffle infused mash

This is a great recipe for winter.

I found osso bucco on special at the local super market. Fantastic. (i think) had a recipe for osso bucco but my iPhone was out of range so I only got half the recipe before the reception dropped out completely

Never mind!

Ingredients purchased for osso bucco
Celery I stick
Can of tomatoes
Some beef stock cubes (about an empty tomato can's worth)
4 small cloves garlic
Squirt of tomato paste
Lemon thyme for garnish
1 case of White Wine for me (I mean the stock)

Fry onions and garlic in a generous glug of oil
Brown osso bucco
Deglase with the wine
Pop all ingredients in the birdy boiler for four hours

The potatoes are cooked and ready for mashing
Mash them
Add some butter and olive oil but don't let either of them know (one at a time)
Also add some truffle oil should you have some "lying around"

When the slow cooked meat is done (if you have any mash left at this point)
Put them together in the logical order and enjoy!

  1. I made Osso Bucco once when I had watched Italian food safari...Mine weren't as awesome as hoped but I think the key may be to get a really thick 1-2 Inch thick. Mine were only about 1-2cm thick and although they achieved the desired slow cooked crumble effect, they were so thin that they almost disappeared :(


Thank you for your comments.
