The Gigg’s pork shank is a meat lover’s delight. This cut comes from the lower leg of pigs and it consists of meat, bone, fat, skin and connective tissue. The connective tissue breaks down during slow cooking to give the pork shank a rich flavour and juiciness. The cut is tough as it comes from the animal’s most hard-working parts but this characteristic also gives the meat its next-level flavour. The shank’s bone has incredible marrow which enhances the meat’s flavour when it is slow cooked. The pork shanks are often smoked and they make go well with soups, beans and broths.
