Cheap Cheerful Beef Cheeks
( SERVES 4 )
The beef cheeks are a under rated cut of meat, but cooked slowly are beautiful, you can add what ever vegetables you have on the day. I love coming home from work and being greeted by the smell of dinner already to be served up to the family. This is important to a working MUM!
