Description

A fantastic cut for braising and long, slow cooking, Beef Shin offers deep flavours and rich melting qualities as the beef breaks down and tenderises in the pot. Sourced exclusively from grass fed herds of heritage breed beef, this cut reflects the quality of our pedigree beef and makes for hearty and wholesome dishes all year round.

How to cook

A rich cut when slow cooked, once largely forgotten but now returning to restaurant menus. To slow cook, lightly fry the Beef Shin before adding in a pre prepared mirepoix of chopped onion, carrot, and celeriac, continuing to lightly fry, before adding in half a bottle of red wine or a favourite ale, as well as beef stock, and cooking long and slow.

About the cut

Beef Shin

In British butchery the shin is taken from the fore shank, or the front legs of the beast, while the hind shank is referred to as the leg. As an overworked muscle of the beast, the meat here is typically tougher than the prime cuts, but the connective tissue breaks down upon slow cooking to offer melting tenderness in the pot. A forgotten cut being rediscovered by chefs and home cooks alike.

Tasting notes:
Region:
Smallholding Farms In & Around Yorkshire

It's good to eat and enjoy heritage breed meat, showing farmers that there is a market for their herds and flocks and encourage them to rear them. Without a demand for their meat, many breeds would die out altogether. When intensive farming reigned unchallenged in the second half of the last century, many of our traditional breeds all but disappeared because they don't take kindly to factory farming. We want to change this and help more people realise that we need to safeguard the natural biodiversity of our farm animals and to demand meat with intrinsic flavour that comes from higher welfare systems. All of our meat fits that bill perfectly.
