Life without a microwave?

For just heating or reheating food, I usually use a double boiler. It takes a few minutes longer than a microwave, but the food usually has a better consistency.

Any reason why beef shank isn't as popular to cook?

My butcher carries beef shanks labeled as soup bones. He said they sell better that way. (I buy them and add marrow bones for broth.) And they do make wonderful soup, but I also save the meat after I braise them for stews. But the marrow is mine, all mine!
