The crosscut beef shank is basically just what it sounds (and looks) like: A crosscut piece of the animal's leg. It's full of tendons and muscle, and a chunk of bone. It doesn't look very pretty, and if you tried to cook it fast, it would be tough and hard to chew. But if you cook this meat low and slow, the marrow in that bone melts out, helping create a smooth, rich sauce, and the meat itself gets melting and tender. Inexpensive, incredibly delicious!

Tonight I finished the last of my braised shanks, so good. Love them because they taste great, but also because they are an economical cut....just can't afford the "premium" grass fed cuts, but who cares when you can have such a tasty, soul-warming braise for a lot less. Rich, beefy taste cannot be beat.
