Looking for an obscure cut of meat

mattlap_2000 | Dec 13, 201106:33 PM

My wife is a caregiver for an elderly polish immigrant who has been talking forever about cooking "the leg of a calf", but claims to have been unable to find it. My first instinct is that he's just talking about veal shank, and the language barrier is getting in the way, but that wouldn't be difficult for him to find.

My wife went to a butcher to ask and they claimed to "used to carry it", which again makes me think it's not a shank.

Anyone familiar with eastern European/Jewish cooking aware of what this is? And if so, where to find it?
