This holiday season, I’m thinking of special meals to serve and lead up to the big holidays. One dish I make on special occasions is osso buco. Traditionally its made with veal but I just couldn’t pass up on the sale of beef shanks at my local grocery store. So this version is made with beef and it went well with my family… so much so that there were no leftovers!
To make in the Instant Pot, it was pretty easy but do allow for some time to come to pressure, to pressure cook and then naturally release. When made on the stovetop and oven, it takes a few hours but pressure cooking does shave off a lot of time. Trust me, it’s definitely worth it! I served this over mashed potatoes but pasta and rice works nicely too…
3 pounds beef shanks
1 onion, chopped
3 large cloves garlic, minced
Plug in the IP with insert set in place.
Press SAUTE and add oil; when hot, add garlic and onion, sauteing until softened.
Season beef shanks with garlic powder, salt and pepper. Place seasoned shanks in IP and lightly brown all sides.
Once browned, add wine and scrape bottom of IP to deglaze.Add remaining ingredients to the IP, stirring to combine.
Press MANUAL and adjust the time to 75 minutes on HIGH pressure.
Once at pressure, the display will reflect 75 (the number of minutes you initially set) and will begin to countdown to 0 minutes.
Open up your IP when the pin has dropped (allow a few minutes for this to happen).
