Also called the cross cut shank, this cut is a thick slice of richly flavored meat with a central marrow bone. The key is to cook low and slow – braised, roasted or in the slow cooker. This cut is also perfect for soups and stews. Traditional osso buco is made with veal shank braised with vegetables, white wine and broth, and we think the beef equivalent is quite delicious!
This cut of beef is highly variable in size and bone ratio. Large cuts range from 1.25-2 lbs and have more meat, medium cuts range from 0.9-1.25 lbs, while small cuts range from 0.5-0.9 lbs and have less meat and more bone - perfect for small meals, soups and stews.
All meat is sold frozen.
