Slow cooker Osso Buco with Sweet Potato Noodles
So, I've made many an Osso Buco over the years, both traditional and crockpot recipes, but this time I was challenged to make it Whole 30 compliant. This really isn't a big deal except when it comes to "What to serve it over?"
Well I've seen and tried recipes for zuchinni noodles but have never had any that really seemed like noodles. I was very hopeful when I saw someone posting about sweet potato noodles so I figured I'd give it a try. WOW they really do eat like noodles and don't have much sweet potato flavor, and they're super easy.
You'll need a good mandolin for this or maybe a spiral cutter (but I haven't tried that method). I did try to use a good veggie peeler with very little success, the sweet potatos were to hard and I ended up making very short wierd shaped strips so I went with the mandolin.
Cut the Sweet potatos as thin as you can go with your mandolin and then cut them into 1/4 inch wide strips.
Bring a pot of water to boil, add a hefty pinch of salt then add the noodles, cook for 3 to 4 minutes until just begining to soften, drain them and they're ready.
I won't bore you with another osso buco recipe, but all I changed was to omit the dredging of the meat in flour before searing, and I used beef stock instead of wine.
Hope you enjoy!!!
