A traditional braisedÂ osso buco, made with tomatoes, red wine and other heavyÂ flavors,Â is just too heavy for the summer and early Fall when the weather is still warm. So instead, I’ve created this lightened up version that I lovingly call a “white” osso buco. The meat is dry roasted with the spices typical to osso bucco, such as thyme and rosemary, and the vegetables are braised in dry white wine to keep the flavors from becoming too rich. The addition of orange zest lightens and brightens the entire dish!
Bright colors equal bright flavors!
Can’t you just imagine serving this duringÂ the holidays to your guests?!? So much color, tons of flavor and you won’t feel heavy when the meal is over.
