Can You Identify this Cut of Meat?

Euonymous | Nov 2, 2010 12:43 PM

It's somewhat embarrassing to mention, but I found a piece of meat in my freezer this morning that I had neglected to label. Clearly I thought I would remember what it was. Ha, ha, silly me!! I think it's a slice of beef shank, but would like to know if anyone can identify it more certainly.

I'm quite sure it's beef. It's round in shape, about 5-1/2 inches in diameter, and 2 inches in height. There is a vaguely round/triangular bone, maybe 2-1/2 inches in diameter, running from close to one edge to the center. There is a nice ring of fat going just about all around the piece of meat. If I'm lucky I added a picture below.

And, for those who can identify it, can you also give me a clue about how to cook it? I will greatly appreciate any help you can give me.
