Recipe: Braised Pasture-Fed Beef Cheeks with Red Wine
- 2 beef cheeks
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 onion, finely chopped
- 2 carrots, diced
- 2 celery stalks, diced
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 cup red wine
- 2 cups beef broth
- 2 bay leaves
- 1 sprig fresh rosemary
- Salt and black pepper, to taste
- Fresh parsley, for garnish (optional)
- Heat olive oil in a heavy-bottomed Dutch oven or skillet over medium-high heat.
- Season the beef cheeks with salt and black pepper. Sear them in the hot oil until they develop a deep brown crust on both sides, about 3-4 minutes per side. Remove and set aside.
- In the same pan, add the finely chopped onion, diced carrots, and diced celery. Sauté for 5-6 minutes, or until the vegetables soften.
- Add minced garlic and cook for an additional minute until fragrant.
- Pour in the red wine and scrape the bottom of the pan to deglaze, releasing any browned bits.
- Return the seared beef cheeks to the pan. Add beef broth, bay leaves, and a sprig of fresh rosemary.
- Cover the Dutch oven or skillet, reduce the heat to low, and simmer gently for 3-4 hours, or until the beef cheeks are tender and easily pull apart.
- Remove the beef cheeks from the braising liquid and keep them warm.
- Strain the braising liquid to remove any solids, then return it to the pan. Simmer over medium heat until the liquid reduces and thickens into a rich sauce.
- Serve the braised pasture-fed beef cheeks drizzled with the sauce and garnished with fresh parsley if desired.
