Osso Buco in Denmark

I am currently visiting my mom in Denmark.

Apparently Denmark saved the winter for my visit, so one day it is snowing and the next raining. It is cold as f… but look how beautiful the snow is <3

I was so lucky my mom had some Kobe Osso Buco’s in the freezer for me to make us. The perfect dish for the cold weather.

It turned out amazing, so here is the recipe for an easy but delicious dish.
