Castlescreen Dexter beef shin is an inexpensive cut. Shin is one of the hardworking parts of the beef carcass, so needs slow cooking. Slow cooking is well worth the wait as it yields rich full-bodied meat with tender melt in the mouth texture. Perfect for warming hearty beef stew and casseroles.
Castlescreen Dexter Farm is certified by the Pasture Fed Livestock Association ensuring our Dexter cattle are raised only on pasture, 100% of the year, WITHOUT any artificial fertilisers or pesticides. The grass diet produces flavourful fats that are also healthier and meat that is naturally high in valuable nutrients that include zinc and iron, phosphorous, potassium, and sodium. Our Dexter beef is also high in beta-carotene, vitamin E, catalase, glutathione, and superoxide dismutase, which are all good anti-oxidants.
