Second time ever having osso bucco and I think it’s my favourite now! Such a simple, easy recipe which is delicious. I cooked it for 7.5 hours on low with a touch of extra liquid. Will serve with mash and pumpkin for dinner tonight 👌

Beautiful recipe, thank you. I used diced chuck steak & added a heap of veg – cauliflower, broccoli, capsicum, carrots, brussel sprouts with whole baby potatoes added two hours before the end. Thickened beautifully & so tasty using my homemade tomato relish (in replacement for what relish recipe stated) that I had on hand. Will definitely make again.

So tasty and easy to make. I added carrot and celery as well as 1/2 a tin of diced tomatoes I had to use up. Served with mash and a green vegetable. Thank you for a wonderful recipe 😊

This was brilliant. Saucy, Rich, Delicious. I served with Mash potato and used chuck for a cheaper alternative and it was perfect. it was a clear winner in my house!

I made this using chuck steak & it was really nice & tasty, and the meat was very tender. . Otherwise I followed the recipe exactly.

Is it possible to use oyster blade steak or chuck steak instead.
