    My borsht recipe calls for beef shin, but my wife brought home "beef shank center cut." It looks more like a steak with a bone. Is this the right cut for borsht? Will it work?

    Beef shank and beef shin are the same thing, Dan. If the shank she bought looks like a steak it just means it was cut thin.
