Osso Buco


You can use whatever vegetables you like, I use whatever is in season as this is when flavour and nutrients are of highest quality. Use my ingredient list as a guide

1.5kg organic grass-fed Osso Bucco

1 large organic onion, sliced

2 organic carrots, sliced

1 cup organic peas

3 cloves organic garlic, crushed or chopped

2 cups organic mushrooms, chopped

1 tbsp organic grated ginger

1 tsp organic ground nutmeg

1 tbsp organic fresh thyme, use dried if you don’t have fresh

4 organic bay leaves

2 cups fresh organic tomatoes, chopped

1/2 cup organic tomato paste, choose one where the only ingredients are tomatoes

2 cups organic bone broth. I use my homemade batch which I freeze ready to be used. Alternatively you can use a stock but steer clear of additives and choose a low sodium brand. The benefits of the bone broth are worth the effort though

1 cup red wine, organic if you can

2 tbsp organic virgin/extra virgin coconut oil

Salt and pepper to season


1) Get your slow cooker set up, if you don’t have one you can use a big pot on the stove top. Heat a large fry pan to medium heat and add half the oil. Cook the meat until brown on both sides, about 8 minutes in total. Put the meat into the slow cook, leave it turned off for now

2) Add the rest of the coconut oil to the pan, add the onion and mushrooms and cook until the onions are clear. Add the nutmeg, thyme, ginger and garlic and cook for a further 3 minutes followed by the rest of the vegetables

3) Add the broth, bay leaves, tomato paste and wine and simmer for about 5 minutes

4) Pour all of the ingredients into the slow cooker and cook on low heat for 5-8 hours. Once cooked pull apart the meat from the bone, be sure to remove the bone marrow as this is highly nutritious

This is nice served over mashed potatoes or cauliflower rice
