Slow Cooker Adobado Braised Beef Shanks
  • Rumba® Beef Hind Shank (2 packages, 4 shanks total)
  • ½ cup ancho chili powder
  • 1 quart bone broth
  • ½ cup raisins
  • 1 cup frozen orange juice concentrate, thawed
  • 2 chipotle peppers, from canned chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, roughly chopped
  • 2 tablespoons white vinegar
  • 2 medium yellow onions, thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons chopped garlic in water
  • 1 tablespoon cumin
  • Kosher salt to taste
  1. Place all ingredients in slow cooker.
  2. Cook on low heat for 6 hours, until shanks are tender yet not falling off the bone.
  3. Serve shanks over cooked rice, topped with sauce from slow cooker.

Tip: To maximize flavor, brown shanks before placing in slow cooker. In large skillet with 2 tablespoons vegetable oil, sauté shanks on medium high heat until browned, about 4 minutes on each side.
