Make Ahead Tips
To make the osso buco ahead, braise the veal and strain and thicken the sauce with arrowroot. Wipe the roasting pan clean, return the shanks to the pan, and pour the sauce over the shanks. Let them cool at room temperature for an hour, cover well, and refrigerate for up to two days. To reheat, cover the pan with foil and set in a 325°F oven until the shanks are hot, 30 to 35 minutes. Transfer the shanks to a dish, then make the gremolata, adding it to the sauce and sprinkling it over the shanks.
Look for arrowroot in the spice section of your grocery store.

Made this exactly as recipe except we ate it with saffron rice garnished with barberries + the gremolata. WoW! what can I say!
Just fabulous. Will make a great Epiphany evening meal. 5 Stars.
Thank you :)
Is the gremolata essential to the recipe or can it be skipped?
Made this for dinner tonight and I can honestly say, it was the best meal I've had since I can remember! Made it with oxtail, risotto a la Milanese, and side of asparagus. Wish I can post a pic.
I’ve made this MANY times, and it’s always a hit. Although polenta is traditional, the risotto is magical. Love.
