    Haven't actually made the recipe (though am planning on it), but wanted to let Lou know that you can easily substitute pork shanks for the veal shanks or even turkey legs will work.

    OK Not work the money for the veal shanks

    I normally don't love veal, but I really enjoyed it prepared this way. They're right - don't leave out the anchovy paste, because it really does add flavor.

    Would love to make this, but Veal shanks are about $7.99 per pound in Massachusetts. It would cost me over $40 to make this dish. Sounds wonderful though.

    If I could give this less than one star, I would. Not only is veal expensive ($12.99 per pound), but this recipe doesn't justify the expense in any way. The meat and broth was totally flavorless. We decided to shred the veal and enjoy the most expensive pulled meat sandwiches in the history of the world! In the meantime, we ordered pizza for tonight's dinner.

    I have made this recipe several times; it is a family favorite. The only drawback that others have noticed is that veal shanks are expensive, so this is a "special occasion" recipe. I make it exactly as written and it has come out beautifully every time. Definitely worth it!

    I also have not tried this recipe, although I will as I was looking for a Cooking Light version of Osso Buco. I just wanted to second Pipsqueak's comment about substituting something for veal. I've made many variations of this type of recipe using pork shanks, chicken and turkey thighs and legs and lamb shanks and they've all been winners. Have some imagination, people.
