Ingredients for Veal Kefta

2 Tablespoons vegetable oil

4 pounds Cedar Springs Veal Osso Buco

4 garlic cloves

2 jalapeños sliced

1/4 cup soy sauce

1/2 cup rice wine vinegar

1/4 cup sugar

3 cups beef stock

1 teaspoon ground cumin

1 teaspoon red chili flakes

½ teaspoon ground cinnamon

Cooking Spray (canola)

Sriracha Honey Sauce

1 cucumber thinly sliced

1 daikon radish, julienned or thinly sliced

1/4 cup chopped cilantro


  1. For the veal shanks, pat dry with paper towels to remove any excess moisture.
  2. In a large Dutch oven pot, heat vegetable oil until smoking.
  3. Add veal shanks to the hot pan and brown all sides, about 3 minutes per side. Remove browned shanks and reserve.
  4. In the same pot, add the onions quarters, garlic cloves, and jalapeños and sauté for 2 minutes.
  5. Pour in soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, and sugar; stir until sugar has dissolved.
  6. Stir in beef stock.

  8. Carefully shred or dice meat.
  9. Blend the sriracha and honey to make the sauce.
  10. Slice baguette in half and fill with meat, julienned veggies, jalapeños, and cilantro.
