Osso Bucco Veal Shank

MMmmm, osso yummy! Love how soft and tender the veal gets from pressure cooking. But the real trick is to sear the veal on both sides. That keeps all the juices in and makes it come out tasty and tender. So remember, this is one of those recipes that you just can’t skip out on the searing. You might also recall, I really dislike washing dishes and that’s why I love how the instant pot has multiple functions. The saute button is perfect for the searing, then using the same pot, I can pressure cook everything together. You know, I would eat of of the pot if I didn’t have to share the food – just so I can wash one less dish 🙂
