BEEF CHEEKS

Postby Odin » Tue Mar 13, 2018 7:58 pm

I picked up my pork belly today and came across some beef cheeks. Haven’t a clue what to do with them. A little research needed. How about some suggestions you may have tried.

I went with an Italian recipe I found. Braised cheeks with wine, garlic, and the standard mirepoix. In the crock pot now for tomorrow’s dinner.

Sorry, I missed this. Good call, low and slow is the way to go. It makes the best gravy!

Interesting, we picked some up a couple of weeks ago and went down the Italian route also. This is the recipe we followed and it was excellent https://thehappyfoodie.co.uk/recipes/br ... e-di-manzo

And the great thing is there was so much of it we froze around four portions for some luxury "ready meals"

I will be eating them tonight. The house smells wonderful. I only purchased a small package to try. Only $2.58 per pound not a bad deal. There is a bit of waste though. My dogs loved the waste so I quess they isnt any waste after all.
