Rendered Beef Shank is better than Oxtail! Why plenty of fat with more meat to eat! We wanted to make this for the Judges on Family Food Fight but when we got in the kitchen they substituted it for Beef Short Ribs! It was disappointing. Why? Because the Shank is larger and cooks up quicker than the short ribs and we only had 2 hours! We pressure cooked the meat on the show but it is best to cook it low and slow. Just watch this tutorial and you can use this recipe for other cuts of beef as well! Scroll to end of this description for a recipe! This is not in the Vol. 1 or Vol. 2 Cookbooks! It will be in Volume 3 when it becomes available.

DO YOU REMEMBER that good old southern cooking? When I was growing up, my granny was my favorite cook. My mama was an amazing cook as well, but there was just something about being in granny’s kitchen.

You can see how to order these by visiting us on our website. Oh and no difficult to find or crazy ingredients! Just simple ingredients and really good food.
I am a southern girl born in raised in Collard Valley in Polk County Georgia. We went to church on Sunday, school during the week, the grocery store on Friday’s and that was our life. No vacations, no camping, just plain old southern country people
NOW FOR THIS FAMILY RECIPE:
2 or 3 larger beef shank (get them with plenty of meat on them)
Olive Oil or Vegetable Oil
Rosemary 2 springs (fresh if available or use 1 tsp. ground)
Sage 2 sprigs (fresh if available or use 1/2 tsp. ground)
1 pepper sliced in large pieces (red pepper is best)
1 large onion quartered
2 large carrots (peeled and sliced in large chunks)
1 stalk of celery (chop into large pieces leaving on leaves)
Take shank out of refrigerator for an hour before cooking. Sprinkle with kosher salt and pepper. Preheat Large Stock pot, then add oil and brown shanks on both sides on high heat until good and brown. Add vegetables and spices and cover with water. Put a lid on pot and simmer for minimum of 2 hours.
Pour broth through strainer reserving large chunks of vegetables. Place shank in a braising pan or another large bottom stock pot. Shank shouldn’t be crowded when doing this step. Pour half of the broth onto shank and turn up heat to medium/high. Boil with lid on until all the broth has evaporated and you are left with a sticky gravy. Flip meat over, pour in the rest of the broth and repeat until all stock has cooked off the meat. Now you are ready to eat up this delicious rendered beef!
