We like to say the pork shank is a cut of many talents. It’s amazing when cured for a week, then smoked all day and used in soups or cooked with greens. The pork shank also loves a slow cooker, so leave it to cook all day until it’s tender and delicious. However you decide to cook it, it’s going to be like no other meat you’ve ever tasted because our pigs develop an incredible flavor and deeper pink hue living out in the woods.
The pork shank is the front forearm of the pig. This cut is tough, because the pigs develop muscles living in the woods, which in turn gives the meat incredible flavor that tastes next-level compared to layman’s pork. The bone it surrounds has marrow that melts into a braise when slow cooked, making it extra tender. You hungry yet?
Pork Shanks are perfect for low and slow cooking. This allows the meat to become tender and full of rich flavor. Always allow the meat to rest before serving and enjoy.
