Description

Taken from the shanks, Osso Bucco literally means 'bone with a hole' in Italian and is famous for the Milanese slow cooking dish of the same name. The cut is ideal for braising, with the bone rich in marrow providing flavour and the meat promising melting tenderness. Sourced exclusively from heritage breed beef herds reared at their own natural pace, on lush pastures to their full maturity.

About the cut

Osso Bucco

Also known as the Bone In Shank, Beef Osso Bucco has entered British butchery traditions recently as an extremely popular slow cooking cut. The key is to deliver a large cross section of bone with a generous portion of marrow, and ample meat attached to this. The shanks are a traditional favourite of butcher's, often reserved in generations passed for the butcher's own pot at home.

Tasting notes:
Region:
Smallholding Farms In & Around Yorkshire

It's good to eat and enjoy heritage breed meat from British breeds, showing farmers that there is a market for their herds and flocks and encourage them to rear them. Without a demand for their meat, many breeds would die out altogether. When intensive farming reigned unchallenged in the second half of the last century, many of our traditional breeds all but disappeared because they don't take kindly to factory farming. We want to change this and help more people realise that we need to safeguard the natural biodiversity of our farm animals and to demand meat with intrinsic flavour that comes from higher welfare systems. All of our meat fits that bill perfectly.
