How to prepare the recipe: "Milanese style sliced veal shank":
In a frying pan slightly fry the onion with the butter, place the ossobuchi, lightly floured, let them brown on both sides. Wet with wine, let it evaporate, add the broth, the tomato paste, salt, pepper and cook at moderate heat until the meat will be tender.
10 minutes before removing the meat from the heat, add the lemon zest, the parsley, garlic, rosemary and mix well.

You can match the ossibuchi with mashed potatoes (see recipe) or a risotto alla milanese (see recipe); in this case it will be a rich main course.
I suggest to match this dish with Pinot Rosso dell’Oltrepò Pavese, Merlot dei Colli Orientali del Friuli, Dolcetto d’Alba.
