Asian style Ossobuco

Asian style Ossobuco (Asian pork shank stew )



I guaranteed your kids will love this dish, pork is tender, sauce is very fruity with all the fruits and vegetables I have incorporated . My son and husband empty their bowls!!! Yummy and full of nutriant for your small one. You have choice to serve on hot white rice, a great hot soup noodle or dip in a french baguette, basically you can eat with anything your kid wish for.


  • 6 pieces of Pork shank
  • 4-5 medium size carrot
  • 5 cloves garlic
  • 2 small red pearl onion
  • 3 tbsp mirin for deglaze
  • 1 cup of water
  • 1/4 cup of bulgogi marinate sauce
  • 2 tbsp mirin in the meat stew
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp of pineapple juice
  • 3 tbsp pineapple puree or cubes
  • 1 medium size apple (take off the peel and core)
  • 2-3 Zucchini


  1. Pan fry pork shank to seal the meat, about 4-5 min each side, until both side gets golden brown. Put in pressure cooker bottom
  2. Use the same cooking pan, add dash of oil (don’t wash pan), add garlic and red onion. Brown 1 min, until nice fragrance come out and nice golden. Add mirin to deglaze. Scrub all bottom sugar to get all the meat flavor
  3. Add deglazed sauce in pressure cooker
  4. Add carrots, water, bulgogi sauce, mirin, pineapple juice, pineapple puree, apple in pressure cooker
  5. Close your lid, start cooking medium low heat for 1hr (I like my meat tender). If no pressure cooker cook for 1 ½ hrs – 2 hrs medium low heat. Adjust depending how tender you like your meat
  6. Add zucchini in the last 5 min, keep your zucchini crunchy to contrast with your tender meat
  7. Ready to serve



  1. I did not add any salt in my dish, the flavor of fruits, sauce and meat were sufficient. Try your dish before adding any additional salt. Less salt with healthier kids!
  2. I used regular carrots to make this dish, however, you could also use mix color carrots for additional  nutriant for your kids.
