Beautiful bone-in beef shank! Combines perfectly with Grow & Behold‘s superb beef bone marrow! During this pandemic, I often cook this shank , together with boat-cut bone marrow, in a Dutch oven on the cooktop, slow cooked, together with lots of large-cut vegetables. I add just enough liquid to cover the shank. I plate the beef, bone marrow and vegetables along with parsley’ed potatoes and a sauce of fresh grated horseradish mixed with ketchup. One perfect bite is beef and bone marrow topped with the sauce! A very hearty and healthy dinner! I strain the broth and serve a cup, heated very hot in the microwave, before bedtime. This beef and bone marrow dinner, and versatile broth, is not only delicious, but healthy as well!
Delicious! As recommended, I browned and slowly braised. With vegetables and flavorings. Because I prepared one shank, I reduced oven to 275° F. Also, I cut vegetables large because I wished to have them as a side. (Carrots in half). Mashed potatoes on the side. Absolutely delicious.
Packs & Weights
Our frozen meats are packaged in vacuum-sealed packages. Most packages contain one piece (ie, one Brisket). Some packages will contain two pieces (ie, Lamb Chops). Packages of smaller items, such as Chicken Wings or Pepper Steak, will contain multiple pieces.
For red meat items and multi-pack poultry items, vacuum-sealed packages may be packed in a cardboard box. If there is an option to choose how many packages you'd like in the box, you'll make that selection under "Number of Packages". Then you'll choose the total weight of the box (that is, the combined weight of all the the packages in that box). If only one choice is showing in a green box, you do not need to make any selection.
Example: Lamb Chops
Let's say you're ordering Lamb Chops and you select the following:
You've chosen: 2 packs, ~1.1lbs, and the price shows as $39.99.
You’ll receive 1 box, with 2 packages of lamb chops inside. The whole thing will weigh approximately ~1.1lbs and will cost $39.99.
Each package will contain 2 lamb chops, and weigh approximately .65lbs.
You’ll have 4 lamb chops in total. Each will weigh approximately .35lbs (note that some may be slightly larger and some slightly smaller).
Weight Ranges & Prices
To keep our fulfillment system practical and manageable, products with variable weights are sold in a weight range (this includes most frozen meats, with the exception of deli meats, sausages and beef jerky). We keep the ranges as small as practically possible to minimize the variation you might receive. If a price/lb is shown with a *, it is an estimate for comparison purposes only, since the price associated with each weight is the price for all items within that weight range.
This chart shows the weight ranges for all our products:
|less than 0.99lb||0.05lb|
