Beef Shin  
Also known as the shank, it is a cut of beef taken from the front lower leg of a steer. Due to the connective tissue, this cut is very tough so it is commonly braised or slow cooked to tenderize the meat. The Beef Shin is commonly used in making slow-cooked soups and stews, providing a flavorful cut to enhance and add much flavor to the foods being prepared.
