Osso Buco Veal Chops
- 1 sprig fresh rosemary
- 1 sprig fresh thyme
- 1 dry bay leaf
- 2 whole cloves
- Kitchen twine for bouquet garni
- 2 whole veal T-Bone Loin Chops about 1" thick
- Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
- All purpose flour for dredging
- 1/2 cup Olive oil Compliments of Dressedby an Olive
- 1 small onion diced into 1/2-inch cubes Compliments of Lee andMaria’s Market
- 1 small carrot diced into 1/2-inch cubes
- 1 stalk celery diced into 1/2 inch cubes
- 1 Tbsp tomato paste
- 1 cup dry white wine
- 3 cups chicken stock
- 3 Tbsp fresh flat-leaf Italian parsley chopped
- 1 Tbsp lemon zest
- Place the rosemary, thyme, bay leaf and cloves into cheesecloth and secure with twine. This will be your bouquet garni.
- For the veal chops, pat dry with paper towels to remove any excess moisture. Veal chops will brown better when they are dry. Secure the meat to the bone with the kitchen twine. Season each chop with salt and freshly ground pepper. Dredge the chops in flour, shaking off excess.
- In a large Dutch oven pot, heat vegetable oil until smoking. Add veal chops to the hot pan and brown all sides, about 3 minutes per side. Remove browned chops and reserve.
- In the same pot, add the onion, carrot and celery. Season with salt at this point to help draw out the moisture from the vegetables. Saute until soft and translucent, about 8 minutes. Add the tomato paste and mix well.
- Return browned chops to the pan and add the white wine and reduce liquid by half, about 5 minutes. Add the bouquet garni and 2 cups of the chicken stock and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover pan and simmer for about 1 1/2 hours or until the meat is falling off the bone. Check every 15 minutes, turning chops and adding more chicken stock as necessary. The level of cooking liquid should always be about 3/4 the way up the shank.
- Carefully remove the cooked chops from the pot and place in decorative serving platter.
- Remove and discard bouquet garni from the pot.
- Pour all the juices and sauce from the pot over the chops. Garnish with chopped parsley and lemon zest.
