Shank

Regular price $11.29

Beef shanks are a flavorful and versatile cut of meat that come from the lower leg of the cow. They are known for their rich, beefy taste and are perfect for slow cooking methods that result in tender, fall-off-the-bone meat. Our beef shanks will help you elevate your culinary creations!

Cooking Tips:

  1. Braising: Beef shanks are ideal for braising, a method where the meat is first seared and then cooked slowly in liquid. This helps break down the tough connective tissues, resulting in tender and flavorful meat. Use a Dutch oven or slow cooker for best results.
  2. Marinating: Marinating the beef shanks before cooking can enhance their flavor and tenderness. Combine ingredients like soy sauce, red wine, garlic, and herbs to create a delicious marinade. Allow the shanks to marinate for at least 2 hours, or overnight, for maximum flavor infusion.
  3. Low and Slow: Due to their tough and collagen-rich nature, beef shanks benefit from long, slow cooking. Choose methods like slow roasting, braising, or using a pressure cooker to achieve the best results. Cooking times can range from 2-4 hours, depending on the size and thickness of the shanks.

Recipes and Preparation Ideas:

  1. Osso Buco: This traditional Italian dish is a classic way to prepare beef shanks. Sear the shanks, then braise them in a flavorful mixture of diced tomatoes, broth, wine, onions, carrots, and herbs. Serve the tender meat with the rich sauce and enjoy it alongside risotto or mashed potatoes.
  2. Asian-Inspired Braised Shanks: Create an Asian-inspired dish by braising the shanks in a mixture of soy sauce, ginger, garlic, star anise, and beef broth. Serve the tender meat over steamed rice or noodles, garnished with green onions and sesame seeds.
  3. Slow Cooker Beef Shank Stew: Cut the shanks into smaller pieces and add them to a slow cooker with vegetables like potatoes, carrots, and onions. Season with herbs and spices of your choice, and let it cook on low heat for several hours until the meat is tender and the flavors meld together.
  4. Grilled Beef Shank Tacos: Marinate the shanks with a mixture of lime juice, cumin, chili powder, and garlic. Grill until cooked through, and then thinly slice the meat. Serve in warm tortillas with your favorite taco toppings like salsa, avocado, and cilantro.
