osso bucco w/o veal or lamb

I'm not a picky eater but my s/o is. Are their any good recommendations for recipes with less gamy meat like beef or pork? Thanks for your help!

    Pork shank makes a spectacular osso buco - more flavorful than veal with similar texture when braised. Niman Ranch sells excellent precut pork osso buco, which my family calls osso porko.

        I made the turkey leg Osso Buco and it was delicious. Not to mention so much cheaper...

          You wouldn't happen to have a recipe, would you?

          Turkey Leg is a popular compromise, and looks impressive with a big old leg bone sticking out of rissoto.
