Look no further than beef shank for foodies seeking a flavorful and unique main. This cut of beef comes from the front leg of the cow – specifically the lower leg – making it one of the most heavily exercised muscles, resulting in an intense and robust flavor with a texture that’ll melt in your mouth with proper cooking. Plus, the collagen present in beef shank breaks down when cooked slowly over low heat, creating a velvety mouthfeel to the cooking liquid, which enhances soups, stews, and braises.
Not only does beef shank taste incredible, but it’s also nutritious! This cut includes a cross-section of a marrow bone, so in addition to being abundant in protein and iron, the beef shank has loads of essential nutrients you won’t find in other cuts. Known around the world for its rich flavor and tender succulent texture, the beef shank is quickly becoming a popular choice for foodies everywhere.
When you buy from Tender Cross Cattle Company, you’re supporting sustainable agriculture, land management, and the humane raising of beef without hormones or antibiotics. Whether you’re looking for something special to serve up at your next dinner party or just seeking out some delicious sustenance during dinnertime – grab some beef shank and start (slow-)cookin’!
