Osso bucco is a braising cut. It’s too tough to cook quickly, but will become delicious & tender when slow cooked in a flavorful sauce.
Typically osso bucco is seasoned with salt & pepper, or a more complicated rub, then seared in a hot oiled pan until it develops a browned crust on all sides. At this point it’s put in a pot with seasonings, liquid (typically wine, stock, or beer for bison), and vegetables, then cooked low & slow on the stovetop or in the oven until the meat becomes tender.
Bison pairs well with bold, rustic flavors like chile peppers, beer, cumin, red wine, rosemary, and sage.
