Slow Cooker Osso Buco
Here's a recipe for those who want the rich, velvety taste of long-simmered beef shanks, but are pressed for time. It takes less than 10 minutes to prep, and then the slow cooker takes care of the rest - so that you can come home to a gourmet meal.
  • Prep Time:
  • Cook Time:
  • Servings: 4



  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 4 pieces beef shank, each about 1 1/4 inches thick (about 2 pounds total)
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • ⅓ cup chopped onion
  • ⅓ cup chopped celery
  • ⅓ cup chopped carrots
  • 2 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste
  • 1 ¼ cups canned crushed tomatoes
  • ¾ cup beef broth
  • Fresh ground black pepper
  • 3 sprigs fresh thyme
  • 1 large sprig fresh rosemary
  • Chopped fresh parsley, for topping


  1. Heat oil in a medium nonstick skillet over medium high heat. Season veal shanks with salt then sear all four sides until browned but not cooked through. Add to the insert of a slow cooker.
  2. Then add the onion, celery, carrots, garlic, tomato paste, crushed tomatoes, beef broth, black pepper, thyme, and rosemary. Stir to mix a bit.
  3. Cover and cook on high for 4 hours or low for 8 hours. Discard sprigs of thyme and rosemary. Sprinkle fresh parsley on top prior to serving, if desired.
