A cut unlike any other, Shank, commonly referred to as Osso Bucco, is a portion of meat from the leg bone. This classic Italian dish is very nutritious and flavorful owing to the marrow in the bone.
Size: Each individual piece is 1 – 2 lbs
Cook: Braising, Roasting
I braised it - completely covered in broth, diced tomatoes, garlic - low and slow on 300F for almost 6 hours. It was falling-off-the-bone delicious! I also ate the marrow - YUM! Totally worth having the oven on all day in the middle of a Florida summer. :)
Praise the Braise!
We bought half a pig and half a cow from Arrowhead and so far everything has been delicious.
Half pig/ half cow. Looks funny, tastes, delicious :)
You gave a description of great grill steaks
I am sorry they taste horrible maybe I had the wrong idea of meat. But I am trying to help our local people is why I looked you up.
We are sorry to hear that these tasted horrible. We strive to only ship delicious meats!
I have a question...did you grill these? (as suggests from your comment)
This item is neither a steak nor an item that one should grill. It is a roast item that requires braising. Treat Shank like a small Chuck Roast.
I ordered 6 lbs of beef shanks to make Osso Bucco for a special dinner. OMG, they were out of this world! Very meaty and flavorful. I even ate the bone marrow it was sooo good. I will definitely be ordering again!
I sure hope you ate the bone marrow, that's 'prairie butter' for some of us. Best part of the whole shank! :)
