How to cook Braised Beef Shank like a master chef? Watch this video now! And did you know that 3 ounces of lean beef has about 22 grams of protein? So this is pretty much a great recipe for anyone. Experts even recommend that pregnant women to have 3 to 4 servings of protein per day because it helps the growth of your baby.

1 pound of beef shank
3 tablespoons of oil
10 slices of ginger
1 bunch of scallions
1 cinnamon
6 pieces of star anise
6 tablespoons of sugar
6 cups of water
1/2 cup of soy sauce
1/2 cup of shaoxing wine
1 tablespoon of salt

In a pot, 1 pound of beef shank in cold water and boil it. After it has reached a boiling point, boil it for another 5 minutes. Then throw away the water and raise it with cold water.

In another pot, add 3 tablespoons of oil, 10 slices of ginger and cook until golden. Then add 1 bunch of scallions, 1 cinnamon, 6 pieces of star anise, and stir fry until the aroma comes out. Then add 6 tablespoons of sugar and stir until it’s melt (this is going to give a nice color to the braised beef). Add 6 cups of water, 1/2 cup of soy sauce, 1/2 cup of shaoxing wine (after being cooked for 2 hours, most of the alcohol will evaporate), and 1 tablespoon of salt.

Now add the beef shank to the pot. Cook it in low heat for 2 hours.  Wait until cool and cut it into slices.
