Ossobuco is one of the historic dishes of the Italian culinary tradition, and owes its name to the particular cut of meat with which it is prepared. In fact, ossobuco is obtained from the central part of the tibia of dairy calves, which is cut into 4-5 cm thick slices each. The name ossobuco derives from the appearance of this cut of meat, in the center of which the section of the bone with its marrow is visible. The traditional ossobuco recipe is typical of Milanese cuisine, as are the origins of the dish.
