Shin-Shank is prepared from either Forequarter/Hindquarter legs (extensor/ flexor group of muscles). The fore leg is removed by a cut following the Brisket removal line from the Forequarter through the M. triceps and M. biceps brachii and distal end to the humerus to include the radius/ulna and associated muscles.
Shin bone-in is a cut prepared from the lower part of either the front or rear leg. Because it comes from a well-exercised muscle, it has little fat and abundant connective tissue. Slow, moist cooking methods over a low heat break down the connective tissue and allow the bone to impart flavour. The resulting meat is tender, making it an excellent cut for casseroles and curries.Cook this cut
Boneless shin is prepared from either the shin area of the leg or the heel muscle in the silverside. As this cut comes from a muscle used constantly for movement, it has little fat and plenty of connective tissue. Cooking boneless shin using a moist low, slow method softens the connective tissue and tenderises the cut while releasing a rich flavour and delivering a fall-apart texture. It’s an excellent value cut for slow cooking.Cook this cut
