Slow Cooked Beef Cheeks

Beef cheeks are packed full of gelatin that supports gut health, joints, hair, skin and nails. This piece of meat is taken from the facial muscle rather than theĀ buttocks šŸ™‚ Beef cheeks are inexpensive, tender and are super easy to prepare and cook. This dish is amazing accompanied by cauliflower mash or simply as is as a stew. Make double the amount and have some the following day for a gut loving breakfast or lunch.
