Nightshade free Braised Beef Shanks Recipe

Time to get some winter grub prepared and what better recipe than nightshade free Braised Beef Shanks Recipe.

Just check out the picture below, doesn’t it just make your mouth water!

I always used Irish produced meat when I chow down on beef as I know it is grass fed and cows have lived a fairly stress free life ( I have numerous uncles who are Irish farmers). Obviously you can’t get Irish beef every where but a little investigative work on Google will point you in the right direction of your local grass fed beef producer/retailer.

I believe you can now order grass fed beef over the internet so also consider that as a viable option, just buy a large storage freezer and bulk buy.
