Cervena Venison Osso Bucco 3 Lbs
Ossobuco or Osso buco is Italian for "bone with a hole" (osso bone, buco hole), a reference to the marrow hole at the center of the cross-cut venison shank.
Ossobuco is a Milanese specialty of cross-cut veal shanks braised with vegetables, white wine and broth. It is often garnished with gremolata and traditionally served with risotto alla milanese.
There are two types of ossobuco: a modern version that has tomatoes and the original version which does not. The older version, ossobuco in bianco, is flavored with cinnamon, bay leaf and gremolata. The modern and more popular recipe includes tomatoes, carrots, celery and onions. Gremolata is optional.
New Zealand Venison is rich in iron and low in fat, making it an ideal meat to include as part of a balanced diet. Venison is packed with many nutrients required for good health such as iron, zinc and a number of B vitamins including B12.-that's why it is called a nutrient dense food. Red meat is one of the best sources of easily absorbable iron. Venison contains more iron than any other meat, including more iron than Beef and Lamb.
Cervena is the venison of choice at many of the finest restaurants nationwide because of its delicious mild flavor and natural tenderness. But did you know that it is low in calories and fat, and packed with iron and zinc, making it a high quality protein that is one of the healthiest red meats available today?
According to the USDA National Nutrient Database, Cervena venison has about a fifth the amount of fat and about 100 fewer calories per 3.5 ounce serving of beef, the traditional choice for red meat.
Cervena's positive nutritional profile is further enhanced by the all-natural methods that are used to raise the animals. Allowed to graze freely on the pristine pastures of New Zealand, the animals are grass fed and free of any growth hormones and steroids. Antibiotics are administered only if an animal is sick, and the deer are transported humanely and processed in plants that have been licensed to produce the Cervena label and meet their exacting quality standards.
