Beef Shank, Fresh Bean Stew


In a crock pot, I combined the following. A beef shank from the Farmer's Market in Davis Square, Somerville. Fresh, shelled cranberry beans from the Farmer's Market in Central Square, Cambridge. A heaping handful of orange and yellow cherry tomatoes from my garden, a hearty splash of port, and half of a red onion. Four bay leaves, sea salt, black pepper.

About three hours into the process, I spread the marrow from the shank on fresh bread. If you've never experienced this before, you're stupid. Or vegetarian.

I ignored several complicated recipes for slow cooked shanks on-line which suggested things like dredging, browning, and cooking the meat and beans separately. After eight hours, I had a rich stew bubbling with golden oil sparkling on its surface. Having finally prepared my own fall apart meat, another veil of the mysteries of cooking has been lifted.

"you're stupid. Or vegetarian."

Redundancy is a curse.
