Pork Shank - Flodins Food

Pork Shank

Pork shank is full of flavour and a common ingredient in traditional Nordic home cooked dishes. Other variations include using boneless pork shank as a steak, which requires a little longer cooking in the oven or braising to make a delicious stew. In Nordic kitchens, salted pork shank is a classic ingredient for pea soup and as the shank has a lot of gelatine, it is often used for a Nordic Christmas dish called meat jelly.
