Where to buy beef cheeks:These slowly cooked cheeks are braised in a beautiful sauce of red wine until they are so tender to melt and eat with a spoon! This beef cheeks’ braising liquid is infused with incredible flavor and transforms itself into a thick and luscious gravel-like sauce if it is purified. This is a very easy dish that’s ideal for an elegant dinner party or a hearty midweek supper accompanied with creamy chopped potatoes. In your slow cooker, cooker or stove, make it!
Beef cheeks are the cheek muscle of cows and are a very tough meal, which has to be tenderly cooked long and slow. It absorbs the tastes of fluid braising and is stringy, almost like pulled pork when cut into it.
However, unlike Beef chuck, which has patches of really juicy sections (used for Beef Stew and Pot Roast), Brisket, and even Beef short Ribs, which can sometimes get a bit dry, not one section of the beef cheek is dry. Every bird is juicy and luscious and this post just types my mouth water!
