Osso Bucco
¼ cup NoMU Extra Virgin Olive Oil
12 small beef shins
NoMU Sea Salt
Plain flour, for dusting
2 shallots or 1 large onion, thinly sliced
1 tbsp NoMU Beef, Roast or One for All Rub
1 carrot, diced
1 celery stalk, diced
2 cloves of garlic, crushed
1 cup white wine
1 x 400g tin organic crushed tomatoes
1 tbsp tomato paste
2 tbsp NoMU Beef Fond, stirred into 1 litre hot water
2 sprigs of rosemary
NoMU Black Pepper

Gremolata
Combine the following ingredients:
Zest of 1 organic lemon
¼ cup chopped parsley
1 garlic clove, finely chopped

Heat half the olive oil in a casserole pot or deep frying pan over a medium heat. Season and dust the shins in flour, shaking off the excess. Fry on both sides until nicely browned and caramelised. Remove from the pan and set aside.

Add the remaining olive oil to the pan and cook the shallots or onion until soft and translucent. Add the carrot, celery and garlic and fry for another 2 minutes. Add the wine and simmer until the wine has evaporated. Return the shins to the pan and add the chopped tomato, tomato paste and Beef Stock. Season with salt and pepper and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat, cover and allow to simmer for 2 hours or until the meat is fall-off-the-bone tender and sauce is deliciously rich.

Serve on mashed potato or creamy polenta and sprinkle with gremolata.

Serves 6.
