Eat Great Meat work with local farmers in Yorkshire to product the tastiest beef on the market, sourced from only traditional breeds of cow including Aberdeen Angus, Highland and Dexter to guarantee high quality. Ox cheek in history was an extremely common way to eat beef, but faded out in time as people began to favour other cuts. Recently, however, this mouth-watering cut has seen a revival.

How to Cook Ox Cheek:
While it’s vital to store this meat in the fridge, ensure you remove it a couple of hours before cooking so it can reach room temperature. This allows the meat to relax and creates a much better texture and taste. Remove the ox cheek from the packaging and pat dry to remove any excess moisture. Fry off the meat in a large frying pan to seal in the flavour and moisture. Depending on your recipe, you can then add it with onions, garlic, stock and vegetables to a slow cooker or large casserole dish in the oven. We love to add some red wine too to give the flavour an extra rich depth.
Our ox cheek is truly delicious and makes some of the best casseroles and stews. We challenge you not to love it!
