When it comes to fine dining or creating an exceptional home-cooked meal, our osso buco offers a luxurious choice. This product captures the essence of culinary indulgence by combining high-quality veal with the convenience of frozen storage.
The term "Provimi" signifies a premium standard in veal, specifically milk-fed, offering a meat that is tender, succulent, and lighter in colour compared to its grain-fed counterparts. Osso Buco is an Italian dish traditionally made from cross-cut veal shanks, braised to perfection with vegetables, broth, and wine.
The "centre cut" comes from the middle section of the veal shank. This prized cut is cherished for its tenderness and the ideal proportion of meat to bone. It captures the essence of Osso Buco, offering a cut that is not just flavourful but also texturally satisfying.

Osso Buco Goes Great With…
The rich and hearty flavours of Osso Buco make it a culinary delight that pairs wonderfully with a variety of side dishes, and even other proteins. Here are some options to consider:
- Risotto: A classic pairing, creamy risotto melds beautifully with the flavours of Osso Buco.
- Polenta: This cornmeal-based dish adds a rustic touch and absorbs the braising juices well.
- Steamed Asparagus: The natural bitterness of asparagus can complement the richness of the meat.
- Roasted or Mashed Potatoes: A simple yet effective side that highlights the Osso Buco without overshadowing it.
- Grilled Chicken: A lighter protein like chicken breast lets the braised veal shanks remain the star of the meal, yet still makes a great pairing for a meal with extra protein.
- Pork Chops: If you’re considering a meat-heavy meal or making a meat-based tomato sauce, pork chops have a more mild flavour that pairs well with Osso Buco.
