Where is diced beef shin cut from?
These muscles lie immediately against the load-bearing bones in the lower part of the legs. The tight muscle bundles are surrounded by collagen sheaths that are attached directly to the tendons which come up from the knee joint in the front legs or the Achilles tendons in the hind legs. They do a lot of work, every time the animal moves. We remove the shin from the bone and carefully dice it, presenting you with chunks perfect for any slow-cooking dish. Shin requires a long slow cook, anywhere from 3 hours, if your recipe calls for something quicker, braising beef is the better choice.
