Instant Pot Osso Bucco with Polenta (Low-FODMAP)
What is Beef Shank?
Beef shank is from the leg of a cow so it is the perfect cut for Instant Pot Osso Buco. As you can imagine, cow legs get exercised a fair bit, so the meat is very tough and has a lot of sinew. It is particularly tasty because of this connective tissue; when cooked thoroughly, it has a delectable texture.
Making Osso Bucco in an Instant Pot
