Wash the spinach then chop into 2cm length. Slice the onion in quarter then again into 5mm thick. Put both in a bowl.

●When you drop the mix into the oil, do so carefully from the spoon to create neat shapes.

Osso Buco, which translates as “hole of bone” is pure meaty awesomeness. Placing on a bed of risotto or polenta pays tribute to Osso Buco’s roots and takes this Italian comfort food to another level. Traditionally, Osso Buco is made with veal but see how I make Beef Osso Buco, a carnivorous wreath.

Risotto doesn't always have to be the star of a dinner menu, it can also serve as a great bed for another dish which it does in episode 106 of POV Italian Cooking where I make a simple Beef Tomato Risotto. This risotto serves as the bed upon which Beef Osso Buco will rest in the next episode (#107).
 
It can be difficult to make a perfect hard-boiled egg that has a creamy yolk and a tender white. Overcooking a hard-boiled egg, which is easy to do, results in a chalky and sometimes greenish yolk, a rubbery egg white and a slightly sulfuric taste. In this video I demonstrate how I use my sous vide to get the perfect hard-boiled egg.
