This is shank – marrow bones with a little meat on them.
Best cooking method:
Stew low and slow with water and a little chicken stock to make a stew with an enhanced broth. If you cook these too fast, the meat won’t break down properly. You can use these to make osso buco; the marrow in the bones adds something truly special to this stew with wine and vegetables.
Follow a recipe if you’re new to cooking beef shank. Add an acid like tomatoes or wine to enhance the flavor.
