The shank – leg.
Best cooking method:
Braise it whole or slow cook cross-cut shank like you would osso buco. Either way, rub the shanks with olive oil, herbs and spices, sear all sides on the stovetop, and braise in a brothy liquid for a good long while. If you have cross-cut shanks, you’ll get the added benefit of the marrow.
You’ll find whole and cross-cut in the vending machines. If you order online, state your preference.
Bone-in stew meat.
