Recipes Tips

Beef shank is a tough cut of meat, so it needs to be cooked slowly and at a low temperature to break down the connective tissues and become tender. You can also add some red wine to the broth to enhance the flavor. Here are some tips to make your beef shank even better:

1. Choose a good quality beef shank. Look for a piece with a nice marbling of fat and a deep red color.

2. Brown the beef shank well. This will add flavor to the dish and help to caramelize the meat.

3. Use a Dutch oven. This type of pot is perfect for slow-cooking because it distributes heat evenly.
