Osso Bucco Soup
This recipe is so simple, and it highlights the delicious Osso Bucco cut, otherwise known as beef, cross-cut shanks. This cut doesn't often get the praise it deserves. When cooked correctly, the meat is so flavorful and tender and falls off the bone. This recipe leaves you with a delicious nutrient-dense soup and broth base and is great for even the novice cook.

Slow cook until the meat falls off the bone.

After the meat is cooked, strain the meat and vegetables from the broth.
