Osso Bucco
Bear Hunting Magazine|November - December 2020
AN ITALIAN DISH MADE WITH BEAR SHANK STEWED IN WINE, VEGETABLES & CLASSIC SEASONING. SERVED OVER CHEESY RISOTTO
Kolby Morehead

Osso Bucco, meaning ‘bone with a hole’ in Italian, utilizes a part of a bear that would typically go to the grind pile. In this dish, we are using the shank, or lower part of a bear leg. This meat would not typically be used by itself because of all of the connective tissue, tendons, and sinew running from the knee down to the paw of the bear.

The ingredients for Osso Bucco are common and cheap, so that’s a big win for this guy. That combined with the flavor and how the meat falls off the bone after cooking makes this a new goto. Oh, and it’s made with only six ingredients, too. It is easy and at the same time unique enough to be a hit in any environment. I’m definitely going to try it with other wild game as well because only the best of friends will be getting it with bear; it’s too good.
