The combination of olives, garlic and chard bring additional flavor to this classic Milanese dish.


  • 1 Tbs olive oil
  • 2 1/2 lbs veal shanks
  • 1 Tbs all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup whole, crushed garlic cloves, skins removed
  • 1 1/2 cups beef stock
  • 1 cup diced canned tomatoes
  • 1 cup olives, halved
  • 3/4 cup white wine
  • 2-3 bay leaves
  • 4 cups chopped Swiss chard


  • Heat oil in a large high-sided sauté pan over medium-high heat. Season veal shanks with salt and pepper, then dredge in flour. Brown in oil for 3 minutes on each side. Add garlic cloves to pan, turn heat down to medium and sauté until golden. Pour in beef stock, tomatoes, olives, white wine and bay leaves and bring to a boil. Turn heat down to low, cover and simmer for 2-3 hours until meat is easily pulled from the bone.
  • Transfer cooked shanks to a clean plate and set aside. Stir chard into sauce and cook over medium high heat for 3-4 minutes until chard is completely wilted. Return osso bucco to pan and serve hot.
