Thread: I used beef shank

    Default I used beef shank

    meat to make a goulash yesterday. It was very tasty. The meat needed
    about 3 hours to become tender at a slow simmer. The meat is a bit
    more pricey than regular stew meat here. It costs $2.99 per pound,
    but includes bone. The challenge is to get a piece of shank which has
    a high meat to bone ratio. I simmered the bone along with the
    goulash. I didn't use any stock, beef or any other base, or MSG, and
    it turned out to be very flavorful. I can usually get regular stew
    beef at $2.99, but I think the shank is better. The liquid was
    water. Paprika, cayenne, and salt for spices. I had run out of herbs
    late last year and didn't replenish them. Lots of onions, garlic, red
    sweet pepper, peeled fresh tomato. Had I used red wine as a liquid,
    my guests would have stayed until 2012.

    If only we could them at that price here! We pay more than twice that
    for "shin fillet" which is what we call them here when the bone is
    removed, and the same when they have the bone in. I prefer them bone-
    in, if only because you get a bit of marrow to make the stew richer.

    They are really good material for pressure-cookers as well.

    The price that I got them at is rock bottom for this area. It's
    offered at an independent grocer. This store also offers bottom
    sirloin for $3.99. That's a cut I don't see much of.
    Yesterday, I checked out prices at a chain store, and they were asking
    $5.49 for bone in beef shank. I think that's ridiculous. The piece
    that I looked at was mostly bone.
