Go CHEAP CUTS!!! Under rated, beer braise the shank. pretend its a stew, big chunks of the typical veg, one whole beer, and let her go. once done (2.5+hr) remove the undesirables, suck the marrow out, put the bones in the freez until your ready to make a stock. slice the meat and place over a mound of rice or mash-taders then place the veg and some broth across the meat.
