Beef cheeks with dates and stout
- If using a slow cooker set it to low or preheat the oven to 150C.
- Trim the beef so there is not too much fat visible, although a little is needed for flavour. Then put into the dish with the chopped dates.
- Peel the shallots, keep whole and add with the remaining ingredients.
- Cover and cook for 9 hours in the slow cooker or 6 hours in the oven. Garnish with parsley before serving with mash or rice.
