"A beautiful, tender and mouth-watering meat casserole, so full of flavor. It forms a juicy and delightfully tasty gravy with carrots, celery and onion. Delicious served with boiled rice or couscous. My family couldn't get enough of this and were fighting to book the left-over bit for their lunch the next day. A real success."

The food was delicious! However, because I am not an exprienced cook, it took me more than an hour to cut and prepare all of the ingredients, before putting everything in the crock pot; so this was not a dish that can be prepared in a short period of time, although it is cooked in the crock pot. If you are looking for something fast to prepare, this is not a dish for you.
i tried this and the veal had no flavor. I ended up having to re-saute the beef and place the contents of the slow cooker into a dutch oven and prepare it that way. It all worked out, but the steps i tried to avoid by slow cooking i ended up having to do anyway.
Not so sure why this is being related to Osso Buco, but it sure tasted great! Followed the recipe exactly except used a veal chuck roast. Served with orzo. Great!
I made it without the Osso Buco cuts and it was good. I imagine with the right meat it would be awesome.
A good recipe, but it needs more: a tablespoon of kosher salt and 1/2 teaspoon of freshly ground black pepper is a start (in a slow cooker--in a Dutch oven cut the salt and pepper in half), and osso bucco is made with grated lemon peel; it's not osso bucco without it. Add two teaspoons freshly grated lemon peel in a slow cooker, or one teaspoon in a Dutch oven.
The vegetable sauce was good but over powered the flavor of the meat. It was pretty much tasteless. I'll try it again but add some additional spices when browning the veal; maybe some tarragon and reduce the amount of onion..
This is one of our go-to favorites! We LOVE this! My kids (ages 3 1/2 and 1 1/2) inhale it and always ask for more. I set my rice cooker with arborio rice to make a 'cheat' risotto and serve this over the risotto. I often have trouble finding veal shank so I will get lamb shank instead. A winner!
Fantastic. We're huge osso buco fans, and this is the most effortless method by far. The veal was beyond tender and perfectly seasoned without overpowering the veal. Don't forget to serve with gremolata: 2 Tbsp FRESH parsley, 1 Tbsp fresh grated lemon peel, 1 clove finely minced garlic. A side of polenta and a big glass of Sangiovese won't hurt either:)
