Shin of Beef – Slow Roast

Shin of Beef

Shin of beef is one of those great value cuts that just gets overlooked and when it’s slow cooked, it becomes one of the tastiest cuts you can find.
It’s great value too. At the time of posting this recipe, our local butcher was selling it at just £6.50 a kilo.

This is one of the simplest recipes that you will find for a slow roast shin of beef. It takes under 5 minutes to prepare.

1 leek
1kg of shin of beef
large knob of butter

1. Line a roasting tin with aluminium foil, cutting enough to allow you to wrap it all around the beef.
2. Top and tail the leek and place on the aluminium foil.
3. Cut some slices of butter on top of the leeks and them place the beef on top. Wrap the foil around the whole lot and pinch seal at the edges to keep all the moisture in.
4. Cook in an over at no more than 150DegC for at least 2.5 hours. The longer you cook it, the more succulent will be the meat.
5. To serve, place on a warm plate and spoon over the sauces. Top off with the leeks, which will almost be caramelised.

Serve with a selection of vegetables (shown here served with red mash and broccoli. Not strictly Ph2, we know, but really scrummy)
