Beef cheeks

I found some really nice looking beef cheeks in the market today.It is the first time I have seen them.
They look like oxtail meat kinda but more marbled.
They look awesome!

I have never cooked them before but from I found a braise seems the way to go.

Anybody else make these before with a TNT recipe?

I think I will try this one if no one else chimes in.

Rioja Braised Beef Cheeks with Creamy Polenta Recipe : Emeril Lagasse : Food Network

No reason this recipe wouldn't work with ox tails or shanks either.

The best stew I ever had in my life wqas made from cheek. I absolutelly loved it. Unfortunately they, the cheeks are not easy to come by. I would love to get my hands on some more of them.
As far as TNT recipe I used my Zharkoe recipe you'll find in my Ukranian recipe thread. Worked great.

I wound up cutting the cheeks into 1 1/2 chunks,seaoning and browning them in oil.I pulled them out and added 2 grated carrots, 3 diced onions,3 cloves garlic and 1/4 cup of italian parsley until soft.Added 1 big seeded chopped tomato,1 bottle red wine and 1 can Chicken broth along with some bay leaves.I put in a basket of sliced mushrooms in the last 1/2 hour.

It has been going for almost 5 hr and is really tasty.

I am skipping the polenta and serving TJ's potatoes with hericot verts and mushrooms.

It's 95 degrees here and I have heated up the house enough.
