White Wine Braised Bison Osso Buco with Lemon and Sweet Pea Orzo

Mar 18, 2024Courtney Johnston

Introducing a game meat recipe for White Wine Braised Bison Osso Buco paired with a bright and fresh Lemon, dill and sweet pea Orzo. Bison Osso Buco is a flavorful twist on the traditional Italian dish, typically made with veal shanks. The term "osso buco" translates to "bone with a hole," referring to the marrow-filled bone at the center of the shank.

In this recipe, bison shanks are seared and then braised low and slow in a mixture of white wine, broth, and aromatics and mushrooms until the meat is tender and almost falls off the bone. The addition of pancetta lends extra depth the the flavour of the sauce. It's often served with gremolata, a zesty mixture of lemon zest, garlic, and parsley, which also adds brightness to the meal. To accompany this hearty dish, we have a Lemon and Dill Orzo with Sweet Peas. This vibrant side dish features tender orzo pasta tossed with bright lemon juice, fresh dill, and sweet peas, creating a refreshing contrast to the rich and savoy flavors of the bison meat.
