Cheeky Ox

I am so pleased Waitrose is now selling cheeks from it’s butcher’s counter. I had cooked pork cheeks before but this time they only had Ox so why not give them a try.
Because they take a good couple of hours to cook I prepared everything and left it cooking in a low oven for almost 3 hours so I had plenty of time to get some shopping and go to the gym for a cardio workout.

Great value cut of meat. 2 ox cheeks will serve 4/6 people and I paid under a fiver for them

You will need:
2 ox cheeks, cut in half
2 leeks, chopped
2 sticks of celery, chopped
2 large carrots, chopped
1 onion, chopped
1/2 head of garlic, chopped
2 fresh tomatoes, skinned and chopped
1 handful fresh thyme
Beef stock

Salt and pepper the cheeks and fry in a bit of olive oil to seal them. Remove from the pan and add the prepared veg, tomatoes, thyme and stock, before returning the meat to the pan

I love cooking this kind of meals slowly in my Le Creuset pot

Once is cooked add a splash of Worcestershire sauce and balsamic vinegar, this really adds a great taste to the dish


Serve in a big bowl with celeriac mash and crispy kale 😋
