    Slow Cooker Osso Bucco With Beef Shanks | Simple Crock Pot Recipes For Beef Dishes | Recipe For Gremolata | Jennifer Boukather Recipe Guru is The Recipe Monkey

    I have this cooking right now and the smell is amazing! The combo of red wine, tomato, garlic and cinnamon is to die for. I'm using beef shanks, but I didn't use any flour to coat them in the beginning step. Not sure yet whether the broth will need thickening of any sort.

    Anyways, easily Primalized and hopefully will be as good as it smells.

    I look forward to hearing how this turns out. We have some lamb shanks in the freezer and this recipe sounds like it would be great with lamb too.

    I loved it! Super rich sauce, didn't need any thickening. Hubby didn't like it, but his tastes run to more Asian flavours, in other words, sweeter dishes.

    I cooked it on high for about 5 hours rather than on low for 10 like recommended. The meat was super tender, fall off the bone. The marrow was still in the bones and fell out with minimal effort. It was delicious, too. I ate mine in a pasta bowl with a large spoon, like a stew. Hubby's was served over pasta.

    The combo of garlic, thyme and especially the cinnamon was amazing. Highly recommended.

    O.M.G.! I made this with lamb shanks, otherwise exactly according to the recipe, mashed potatoes and everything, minus the flour dredge. It was amazing! I used a stick blender to purée the cooked veggies and the resulting gravy was plenty thick. We're having this again for sure. The whole family loved it! Thanks so much for sharing it, marthat.

    This would likely be awesome with beef short ribs as well, don't you think?

    Yes!

    I wasn't sure how much meat 8 beef shanks was, but I had 2.75 lbs lamb shanks so I just went with it. I think you could use as much as 4 lbs meat without any problem. Even a boneless stewing meat would work. However, the marrow was especially delicious after cooking in that gravy.
