Pig Wings and Pork Osso Buco

Pig Wings and Pork Osso Buco

Crazy About You calls it "petite pork osso buco."

The Federal Food, Drink & Provisions calls it "pig wings."

​In fact, this is a cut of pork off of the back leg shank -- so in a way it really is a petite osso buco. But because the word shank doesn't entice as a menu description, and because this pork has a bone-as-handle drumette quality like a chicken wing, savvy salespeople began marketing them as pig wings. It's becoming a popular restaurant (and bar) snack across the country.

Can you tell which is the "wing" and which is the "osso buco"?
