The Cuts Less Traveled
If you haven’t tried cooking with the less popular cuts of meat…neck, knuckles, feet…you are missing out. Not only are they cheap, they are delicious and very nutritious. These uncommon cuts are full of collagen, marrow, and cartilage. These are necessary for our own healthy joints, brain function, nerve conduction, healthy skin and hair. It’s where supplement companies take their raw materials. Then they dry them out, mix them with other chemicals and desiccants and turn them into expensive pills and powders. You can skip the middle men.
This hearty recipe is also great for the cold (cooler, anyway) winter months. This is when we warm and build our reserves for the budding of spring, and then the high activity of summer. This dish is straight from my favorite TV chef, Jacques Pepin, off his show Heart and Soul in the Kitchen that ran on PBS.
