What are the Benefits of Cooking Osso Bucco in a Slow Cooker?
Slow cookers are often used to prepare dishes with long, slow cooking times. This is because the low, even heat slowly breaks down tough connective tissues in the meat, making it tender and flavorful.
The Osso Bucco is a dish that is traditionally made by braising veal shanks until they are fork-tender and then simmering them with vegetables in a rich tomato sauce. The dish can be prepared in a slow cooker by using a combination of fresh and canned tomatoes, wine, garlic, onion, and thyme.
