Although the dish appears "fancy" by most modern American standards, it has long been considered a working-class meal as shanks were cheap and easy to obtain. Venison Osso Bucco is delicious and simple to make, if your hunt results in a harvest, make sure to save those shanks for this most excellent dish.
This is my Oklahoman take on a very classic shank recipe, osso bucco. I’ve slow cooked venison shanks a handful of ways, from Dutch ovens to sous vide, and the crockpot delivers the low temps and long timing you really need for a nice braise on venison. What I also love about this recipe is that it requires the most basic of skills to create a beautiful meal with a really underrated and unused cut.
