My beef shank’s flavor is all in the braising liquid. To give the best flavor, add slices of yellow onions, Worcestershire sauce, and Madeira wine to the beef shank.

These ingredients will be combined with oak and cherry wood to create a beautiful shank that will quickly become your favorite piece of beef stock.

The Smoking Process

A cigar is a hollow cylinder of dried and fermented tobacco that is rolled in a multi-colored wrapper leaf. The wrapper leaves have to be moist enough throughout the entire process so they do not become dry, brittle, and flake off during the rolling process.

Tobacco for cigars comes from different areas around the world with tropical climates like Indonesia, Cuba, the Dominican Republic, Honduras, Mexico, and Nicaragua.

The fermentation process is key to making a great cigar. The tobacco leaves are placed in large piles called pylons where they will ferment for several weeks. The temperature and humidity are closely monitored during this time as it plays a big role in the outcome of the cigar.

Place Beef Shank In A Baking Dish And Cover With Foil

Place the beef shank in a baking dish and cover with foil. Place the baking dish in the oven and bake for about 2 1/2 hours or until the beef is tender enough to be cut with a fork easily.

If you want your meat to be more tender, increase the time by 30 minutes to one hour. Remove from heat once the beef is done and serve with your favorite side dishes.

If you want to save the remaining beef for future use, allow it to cool before storing it in an airtight container and refrigerating.

Place Beef In A Baking Dish And Bake For 2 Hours Or Until Tender

To continue cooking the beef in an oven, you will need to place the beef in a baking dish and bake it for 2 hours or until it is tender. You may want to season the meat with salt and pepper before putting it into the dish.

The key to delicious roasted beef is ensuring that the meat stays juicy while cooking. One way to do this is to cover the baking dish with aluminum foil. Use an oven-safe thermometer to ensure that the temperature of the oven does not get too high and cause the beef to dry out or become tough.

After 2 hours, carefully remove the meat from the oven using a pair of tongs or heat-resistant gloves. Let it rest for a few minutes before cutting and serving it, as this will allow the beef to retain its juices.
