Dust beef cheeks with seasoned flour, place in casserole dish and brown on both sides (do this in batches to avoid overcrowding the dish).

Add the celery, carrot and onion and cook until soft.

7

Add the garlic, bay leaves, orange rind, ground cumin and allspice and cook for a further one minute.

8

Return browned beef cheeks to the casserole dish, pour in the red wine and bring to the boil.

9

Pour in the beef stock, bring up to the boil again then cover with a disc of baking paper and a tight fitting lid.

10

Place in the oven and cook for 3-3 ½ hours or until the beef cheeks are almost falling apart.

Stir beef cheeks halfway through cooking and check seasoning as required.
