Reviews for Beef Osso Bucco
"I won't make this again simply because I feel there are better crock pot stews. I wasn't impressed with this recipe and it didn't have a lot of flavor. However, I have to say also, that I didn't use the beef shanks. The bones might have added the flavor it needed but the shanks didn't seem to have enough meat on them."
