Stuart Woods' Stone Barrington books. The lawyer/detective seems to be always flying off to adventure with a beautiful lady in his arms and danger just around the bend. When he comes home, Stone enjoys having dinner at his favorite fictional haunt, Elaine's, where he orders Osso Buco with a glass of Knob Creek to wash away the day.
So rearranging the menu a bit for Big Guy as I found a deal on Osso Buco at the grocery store this morning! Just might email Stuart Woods and see if he would like to fly in for dinner!
Check back later this evening for the recipe and reviews, as well as tips to cook this dish with other cuts of meat.
