Pork osso buco

  1. Preheat oven to 160˚C (325˚F).
  2. Season pork with salt and pepper all over. Heat oil in a large ovenproof skillet over high heat, and brown meat on both sides.

  4. Add pork, white wine, chicken stock, tomatoes, sugar, oregano and sage.
  5. Season with salt and pepper. Bring to a boil. Cover and bake in the oven for 1 hour and 30 minutes, or until meat is tender and pulls apart easily with a fork.
  6. To serve, sprinkle with oregano, sage and lemon zest mixture and accompany by buttered orzo with Parmesan.

Variation
: Replace white wine by orange juice, lemon rind by orange rind, and sage and oregano by fresh basil and thyme.
