Often overlooked, beef cheeks, when cooked correctly, can literally melt in your mouth. The nature of the cut also means that they impart a huge amount of flavour.

This recipe is simple yet stylish and a great one to serve to guests when you don’t want to spend forever in the kitchen. We like to serve these beef cheeks with a simple creamy potato or parmesan and cauliflower mash for a lower carbohydrate option. The beef also makes a wonderful pie filling if you have any leftovers!
