Introduction

With the weather turning colder here, slow cooked dishes are on high rotation.

I love the ease of the one-pot cooking and there is nothing as satisfying as taking a cheap cut of meat and turning it into a lush, tender, falling apart forkful of yummy.

You could use any cut of beef suitable for slow cooking in this dish, I just have a fondness for beef cheeks.

You can also use a slow cooker if you prefer.

You know what I want you to do.
Make it. Post it. Tag me.
Enjoy!
