Fancy and delicious.
Osso Buco literally means "bone with a hole" in Italian, referring to the marrow hole from the beef shank that appears once you've cooked your dish.
When I was looking for a recipe for Osso Buco I specifically looked for a dish made in the slow cooker - in order to allow the flavors to blend together nicely. This is an adaptation on a recipe found on the Kraft Canada's website.
As a bonus, you will also learn how to make Polenta. Make the recipe as is first and play with the cornmeal quantity later - if you want your polenta to be thicker or thinner. If you're making food for more than 4 people, consider doubling the ingredients for the polenta - otherwise this is something very easy to make and you could prepare a second batch during the week.
