The hind shank is typically one of the most inexpensive cuts of beef. It's usually sold in rounds, cut 1 to 2 inches thick, with a section of marrowbone left in place. Shanks are among the richest-flavored of all beef cuts, but there's a catch. They're exceptionally tough, and only suitable for long, slow cooking. Countertop slow-cookers provide a convenient way to cook your shanks unattended while you go about your day.
