2 oz extra virgin olive oil

Veal Chop: 1 portion recipe

In a 10in sauce pan, Heat the olive oil until it smokes. Then season the veal shank and place one side of it in the hot oil
when it reaches a rich brown color turn it over and repeat on the other side, be careful with your heat, you don’t want to
burn the fond. Next remove the shank and add the carrot, celery, leak, garlic, and onion to the pan and gently sauté until
lightly caramelized. Then add half of the Brunello and all of the veal stock, put the shank back in the pan and cover it with
a lid or tin foil, cook until the shank is fork tender all the way through. When the shank is done remove it from the braising
liquid and cool it in the fridge, keep reducing the liquid about 2/3 then strain through a cheese cloth lined chinoise.
When the shank has cooled, shred the meat with your fingers in medium size pieces and place in a mixing bowl then scoop
out the bone marrow and mix it into the shredded veal gently (don’t tear up what you have shredded) and season to taste.
Next pick the herbs from there stem and chop them. In a mixing bowl, mix the chopped herbs with extra course sea salt
and fresh cracked pepper. Then take the veal chop and scrub the bone with steel wool removing any connective tissue.
Then lightly pound the chop to about 1/2 inch in thickness. Next take your shredded veal mixture and place it in the center
of the veal chop and roll it up then wrap it with the cual fat keeping the bone in a vertical position, it should go around twice.
Then in a hot sauté pan sear the chop until golden brown and the fat is crisp. Now crust the chop with your herb mixture
and Place in a 350 degree oven to finish. When the veal comes out place it on a rack to rest about 5 min before slicing.
Then take your hot pan and deglaze it with about half of what is left of the brunello, reduce by 7/8 and add the reduced
braising liquid and reduce until it will coat the back of a spoon. Slice and Serve over the risotto keeping the bone attached
and garnish with fresh chervil and fresh chives.

4 – Veal Osso Buco (cut 1.5") Round wheel ~ 1# each
1 Teas. Fresh Rosemary (Chopped)
1 Tbs Garlic (Chopped)
1 Pinch Sage
1 Tbs Parsley (chopped)

1 Tbs Oregano (leaves)

1 large Sauté Pan (12" diameter)

1 pair of cooking tongs

Chop rosemary, garlic, sage and parsley together. Put a knife slit into the top of the Veal wheels between the center bone
and the outer part of the meat. Finger plug slit in meat with half of the spices. After plugging all 4 Osso with the above
spice mixture – add the salt, black pepper, and oregano to the balance of the spices and sprinkle this enhanced spice
mixture all over the meat turning the wheel over completely to coat as it turns.
Add 1/8 " high level olive oil to the bottom of the sauté pan, and heat oil to temperature. (Do not over heat oil to smoking
point) Take each Osso Buco wheel, and individually lightly flour, and then gently place (so the oil does not splash) them into
the pan of hot oil. Cook until meat is golden brown on both sides – flip to cook the other side of the meat. (Flip with tongs)
This is about 5 minutes total. Remove all four Wheels and place them in a roasting pan. Discard oil from sauté pan,
and add to this same pan 2 tbls garlic, butter, tomatoes, ham base, and chicken stock, and bring to a simmer
on the stove. After simmering, pour this evenly over the wheels that are now in the roasting pan. Cover roasting pan
with saran wrap, and aluminum foil. Place in pre-heat oven for 2 hours at 325 F.

Remove all four and plate them. Serve with your choice of vegetable and/or roasted potatoes. Enjoy the tasty marrow filing
from the bone with a small cocktail fork. (This recipe serves four persons).
