Beef shanks are an inexpensive cut of meat that become incredibly tender when cooked in liquid. This gives you the health benefits of the bones, such as gelatin and collagen, without having to make bone broth separately, and also provides enough flavor that you can cook in water instead of stock. The algae oil adds richness, which is needed since shanks are lower in fat than other parts of the cow.

Ingredients

Directions

Notes:

- Use 3 bone-in beef shanks (about 3 cups of meat)
