Recipe | Have Steak and Your Collagen Too!

Beef Shank Foxhollow Farm
Every month we have the luxury of enjoying a delicious team lunch made by our partner grower Jared. He recently created a delectable meal made from our beef shanks, Braised Beef Shank. A sadly under utilized cut, and it was so amazing that we just have to share the recipe. At just $6/lb, this cut of beef includes a portion of collagen rich bone marrow and when braised slow and low, melts in your mouth. It is perfect for feeding a crowd at Sunday supper and will warm you right up on these chilly late fall evenings. You can have Steak and your Collagen too! Braised Beef Shank serves 8 Ingredients:
  • 4lbs Beef Shank
