Slow Cooker Osso Bucco has to be one of the tastiest meals ever. The meat is so tender and is literally falling off the bone. It is always a winner when I make it for family.
Osso Bucco is one meal that I grew up with. My mumma would make it a few times a years and my version has been adapted to be made in a slow Plus my version is also keto, lchf and paleo friendly!
I love preparing a dish in the morning and then letting it cook all day. I always make a big batch also for my hubby to take to work.
I cook mine on low for 8 hours and usually serve with quinoa. Cauliflower rice or zucchini noodles would also work well.
