Humanely Raised Grain-Fed Veal
Grain-fed Veal Hindshank Osso Bucco
Choose from 1.5", 2", 2.5", and 3" thick cuts.
Osso bucco is a flavorful braising cut from the leg - a disk of meat surrounding a portion of leg bone. Once braised the meat becomes exquisitely fork-tender.
Hindshank osso bucco is typically considered more desirable than foreshank osso bucco. Its bone is circular and wider than the foreshanks' oval-shaped bone. It will occupy more plate space and will appear as a larger portion than a foreshank cut to the same thickness. Despite having a larger bone, there is a comparable thickness of meat surrounding the shank bone.
Grain-fed veal is not the same as ‘pale veal.’ Its natural rose color comes from a varied, nutritious diet, including grains, which give the meat a more robust flavor for two reasons: First, grains give the meat subtle marbling that infuses the meat with flavor and tenderness that veal is known for. Second, grain-fed veal contains more iron and other minerals which add to the delicious flavor and the animal’s health.
Le Québécois is the first veal program to combine USDA approved All Natural* status, humane animal husbandry, full traceability, and sustainable farming practices.

What Others are Saying
These osso buccos are awesome... and huge... the ones I got were the 2 1/5” ones and were all the same cut place on the shank (which was near the knuckle) and averaged 24 oz a piece.....The issue I had with this is that I needed 11 for a dinner an there were six in the box...I called Marx to try and find out how many would be in the box before I ordered but because of the variance in the shank size depending on where it was cut they can vary quite a bit so they could not give me a number…. I am leaving this review to help establish how many would be in a box for the next person who orders them….
