Lamb Osso Buco Stew for Babies

Lamb Osso Buco Stew for Babies

This is the 3rd post of the Half Lamb for Babies series where I make every piece of lamb BLW-friendly.  A BLW recipe for each piece!  You can check out my two first posts: Minty Lamb Meatball recipe and Grilled Lamb Chops recipe.

I had never made lamb osso bucco before but this was BY FAR the best meal of my whole week.  Used a package of the Ferme Valens lamb shanks which can also be called osso bucco. Cooked in Instant Pot which is a pressure cooker that cooks meat in no time. This meal is full of garden-fresh veggies that I got from my CSA basket from Tourne-Sol Farm.

To serve the adult portion, I took some white rice:

The meat is so tender that even 6 month olds can enjoy it.  Here is the baby portion:

Lamb Osso Buco Stew Recipe



4 pieces lamb shanks (osso bucco)

2 tablespoons coconut oil

2 onions, chopped

2 cups carrots, chopped

1 cup radishes

4 cloves garlic, coarsely chopped

2 cups kale, chopped

2 cups + 2 more cups chicken broth

2 bay leaves

1 tablespoon dried rosemary



Over medium-high heat in the pressure cooker pot (sauté setting for the Instant Pot), sear all sides of the lamb osso buco in coconut oil until browned. Remove from the pot. To the oil in the pan, add the chopped onion, carrots, radishes, garlic and kale and cook until about 15 minutes. Add 2 cups of chicken broth and let the mixture cook for about 5 more minutes. Add the osso buco pieces back in, and pour in the rest of the chicken broth. Make sure that the meat is covered in liquid. Add bay leaves and rosemary. Cover and cook on “meat/stew” for 35 minutes on high pressure.  Release the pressure and remove the meat.  Let cool and serve.
