What cut of veal is this? in Cooking Posted August 29, 2019 · Edited August 29, 2019 by Smithy Corrected title spelling (log) The local grocer had a couple of packages of jarret de veau, or veal shank for half price. Clearly, this is not the case or the French have some strange cut of shank that does not include the bone. I am hoping someone here might be able to identify what cut this is. It is boneless and came in two pieces, weighed about 500g and are about 15cm long. Any help will be appreciated.
