Beef Shin with Ginger and Scallions

It’s getting colder and colder here in Boston. I have been cooking mostly soups and stews to  keep myself warm and also prep my body for the harsh winter months. I am going to show you how to make Beef Shin with Ginger and Scallions. It’s hearty and nourishing to the body. Beef shin is an inexpensive cut of meat and can be found in the meat aisle at your local supermarket.  Hearty, chewy, and one of the most underrated cut of meat.

Ingredients:

1 piece of beef shin

2 tablespoons of cooking oil

1 piece of ginger (2 inches in length)

3 scallions

2 tablespoons of oyster sauce
