Osso Buco is a nineteenth century Milanese dish that, luckily, has never gone out of style. It's a cut of shank, cooked for hours in a slow braise of wine, tomato, carrots, celery, and onions. Traditionally it's made with veal but it's also delicious with pork—especially when the pork is from heritage-breed hogs, whose fat turns meltingly tender.
We'll send a group of 8 oz pieces of raw shank, cut to size to cook up your own hearty osso buco. They come from Red Wattle or Berkshire pigs raised humanely, with acess to the outdoors, given natural feed with no hormones nor antibiotics.
Berkshire pork has a classic porky flavor that everyone loves, turned up about six notches.
Red Wattle pork is the sweetest variety. With a thin ring of fat that melts in your mouth.
Ships frozen. They may thaw and be cold, not hard, when they arrive.
