Cooking & Serving
Cervena venison is a high-quality protein and one of the healthiest red meats available today. It is naturally low in calories and fat, yet packed with nutrients like iron, zinc and B vitamins. According to the USDA National Nutrient Database, venison has about 20% less fat and about 100 fewer calories per 3.5 ounce serving than beef. It's the ideal meat to include as part of a healthy and balanced diet during any season.
Osso buco is a traditional Italian term meaning “pierced bone” and usually refers to the cross-cut shank of a veal calf, taken from the top of the thigh. With its high proportion of meat to bone, our venison osso buco makes for a spectacular variation on a classic Italian favorite. Cook osso buco low and slow to extract all the deep flavors and rich bone marrow. Reduce the braising liquid for a sauce with depth and dimension and serve over a puree of potatoes and celeriac.
