Osso Bucco

Been meaning to do this for ages. I don't think we eat enough veal in this country....I certainly don't.

However, I was very shocked to have to pay £15 for four slabs of veal shank. Surely this is a cheap cheap cut ?



However, all was forgotten after a quick dusting of seasoned flour and a 10 minute fry



It could almost be creole with the holy trinity



Just before a long sloooow cook



In fact - so long and slow that all the meat fell of the bone - so no shot of a lump of veal. It was almost like a spag bog - very nice...but not for £14 for what was basically two (large) portions

Smoked Wings

A quick and easy one - that proves the rule that the cheapest cuts of meat can make the best dishes.

Made up a quick rub





And marinaded



I used my gas BBQ and a foil full of smoking wood chips



And very nice they were too....



Especially with loaded potato skins
