Congratulations! You've stumbled upon the often overlooked cross-cut beef shank. This is perhaps the most underrated cut of beef, but there are lots of reasons you should consider trying it today:

  • Lean. Makes for a great high-protein, low-fat meal
  • Rich Beef Flavor
  • Marrow included! That cross-cut leg bone is filled with succulent marrow
  • Low cost per pound (less than $3/lb Steakhouse and $4/lb Organic)
  • Easy. Just braise (slow cook) it, or get a little more creative

With all that going for it, the value proposition of a good beef shank is forever in your flavor. Try it in a stew, a soup, osso buco, a simple moist-heat braise, or what may be Ron Burgundy's favorite style, Beef Burgundy (Bourguignon). Did we mention osso buco?

Our Beef Shanks come two per package and, like all beef shanks, are cut from the Shank Primal, which is a portion of the leg and is used extensively for movement.

Repeat customer

Does it get any better?

It doesn't. I almost hate sharing the love for these but it's too good not to tell everyone about.


Just season and pressure cook them-use all the broth and marrow to make wild rice - add the meat … husband raved about it..friends at work remind me to bring them some lunch 🙂

Great meat at bargain price

With less than $4/pound, the organic meat taste way better than the one you buy from Asian store. Only thing is you need a big fridge to store them.

Fabulous, can't miss dinner for guests!

I order these all the time. Everytime I make it is fantastic!

Excellent flavor

Slow cooked on the stove in a Dutch oven for many hours, Tender and great flavor. Plenty of marrow in the bones for extra bonus!
