If slow-cooking is your vibe, beef shin is your friend

It’s official: it’s slow-cooking weather out there, and if there’s one meat cut that is perfectly suited for this kind of cooking, it’s flavourful beef shin. Ideal for a hearty beef stew or soup, to warm the belly.


Winter might not be everyone’s favourite season but it does have some charms, such as hearty soups, stews and other slow-cooked wonders. Woolies’ free-range beef shin is perfect for slow-cooking, and is specially selected for tenderness and flavour. Add it to stews or curries, use it to make a robust osso bucco, or the meaty base of your next soup.

Pan-fry Woolworths beef shin in 1 T olive oil and 1 T ghee in a hot pan until golden. Serve with Woolworths fresh beef and bean soup, topped with finely chopped Italian parsley, lemon zest and crusty bread.

Feeling inspired? You can also try your hand at this moreish slow-cooked beef ragu with gnocchi, which is just what the weather ordered.
