Any reason why beef shank isn't as popular to cook?

Rafie | Sep 23, 2007 11:03 AM

I see so many recipes for veal and lamb shank, but for all the in-vogue fervor over cuts that need long slow cooking, I rarely see recipes utilizing beef shank. Is there a reason for this?

Also, if I have a bunch of beef bones and beef shanks, would the best way to utilize them be in a beef stew or would the meat be too tough even after long stewing? I'm debating between braising them and stewing them.
