Osso Bucco – (Kind Of)

You say stew and people wrinkle up their noses with thoughts of stodgy tastless mush fed to them as children. You say Osso Bucco and all you hear is 'whoo can I try?' This is a beautifully flavored dish, perfect for a day when the proverbial hits the fan.

4 tbsp olive oil
1 large brown onion, finely chopped
1 large carrot, finely diced
1 large celery stalk, finely diced
1 bay leaf
2 thick pieces of Osso Bucco
2 tablespoons Paprika
Squeeze of Lemon
Finely chopped oregano
Finely chopped parsley
2 cups of stock
1 cup of cooked butter beans
½ cup of chopped mushrooms
1 large thyme finely chopped
1/4 tsp nutmeg

Brown off meat in oil. Place in slow cooker of large thick bottomed pot. Pour in stock,beans and spices. If you’re using a slow cooker, cook for about 6 hours, in a pot around 3. Add vegetables about 40 minutes before serving and sprinkle with parsley.
