I did a little reading about beef cheeks, Dave, and it seems braising is the best cooking method. The cheeks are very muscular from all the chewing a cow does, and the meat very fine grained, like the tongue.

That is what I came to say. Low and slow is the best way to deal with them. Dredge in flour, season, sear, remove, add onions, shallots, rosemary, garlic, what ever you like, replace, just cover with good beef stock and or red wine, let er rip.

Stew indeed. I made it ones, it was the best stew I ever had. You can use mine recipe for Zharkoe.

Thanks for the PM, Dave. Would would have thunk it!
I was thinking the other end!
Thanks for the info.
I think I'll just have a bowl of cereal.
