Slow Cooked Osso Bucco
Winter is the perfect time for slow cooking. One of my favourites is slow cooked osso bucco. The large bones are filled with marrow and melt into the sauce of the stew forming a calcium enriched meal. Because the bones and meat are slow cooked for 8 hours all the nutrients are absorbed through and into the broth which in itself has been brewed for 12 hours.
