Low Carb Osso Bucco In Minutes!

Uncategorized Sep 27, 2023

Don't be afraid of using a pressure cooker! In this episode Dr Lucy prepares one of her favourite foods ever, Osso Bucco, which is "beef shank". It is incredibly nutritious as the bone marrow is cooked into the dish, adding gelatin and collagen. Served with cauli mash and delicious salty, buttery green beans which couldn't be easier in the microwave.
