Slow Cooked Beef Shank

Melt in your mouth whole beef shank.  We like to call it Thors Hammer but whatever you call it this dish is a winner. Make your favourite Mac and cheese recipe to serve with this delicious slow cooked beef shank.  My suggestion is to make sure you use at least three different types of cheese for that melt in your mouth, tasty goodness.


  1. Pre-heat over to 150 degrees.
  2. Remove your beef shank from the packaging and place into a large baking dish.
  3. Smoother your shank with your favourite spice mix.  I used our homemade taco seasoning but added a little extra chilli.
  4. Pour a cup of water into the bottom of your dish
  5. Cover with baking paper and then foil to make sure the shank is well sealed.
  6. Cook for 6 hours until your shank is soft and starting to fall away from the bone.
  7. Shred the meat off the bone and serve on top of your mac and cheese.
  8. Leftovers were great the next day as well.
