This is a great recipe that Naf learned when he was traveling out West learning with some of the shochtim (who now work for us at Grow and Behold.) It’s a great recipe to throw in the crock pot before you go out for a day of hard work, because when you come back you’ll have something most amazing waiting for you! Beef cheeks, slow cooked, are in a class of their own: an incredibly silky, tender meat that kids (and grownups too) will love.
Easy Beef Cheeks
1 onion, medium dice
2 large carrots, 1″ rounds
2 garlic cloves, whole
1 bottle beer (optional)
2lbs Grow and Behold Beef Cheeks
Put all ingredients in crock pot. Add enough water to fully cover the meat. Cook on medium 6-8 hours until fork-tender. Serve over wide noodles, with a side of salad, leafy greens and, if you plan ahead (and it’s worth it if you do!), No-Knead Crusty Bread.
