While shopping, I discovered a big sale on boneless beef shank and bought a few pounds on a whim. Who can resist a sale? Not me; some people buy shoes; I buy groceries, what can I say. I have no experience preparing this cut of meat. As I was handeling this beef in preparation for packaging, I could tell that it was a very tough cut of beef. I knew this was going to be a challenge for me. I went in search of a recipes using it and came across this one on Yahoo.com It is a Wolfgang Puck recipe, and sounds delish. I've copied the recipe exactly as written, including the cooking time of 1-1/2 hours. I believe the cooking time will be considerably longer if it is to become tender. The preparation time I've entered is a "guesstimation" because, as I've said, I've not made this yet. If anybody prepares it before I get to it, please provide cooking details in the review process. I can't wait to test my cooking skills on this.
