      I’m not sure what to expect from this piece of meat. Is it anything like a beef roast? I bought some because I liked the price and I like trying new things.

      I thought about browning it then simmering in gravy till tender and adding dumplings. Maybe a little liquid smoke, tin foil and the oven? I sure would appreciate any suggestions.

      Beef cheek is a tough cut of meat that comes from the cheek of the cow. Most people braise beef cheek so it can absorb flavor and juices- but we just dump it in the crockpot

      The ingredients are beef cheek, beef bones, 2 cloves of garlic, 4 celery stalks, 4 medium to large carrots, 1 small onion, olive oil, salt, coarsely ground black pepper, thyme, rosemary, and 1 bay leaf and a bit of beefstock

      Dump everything in the crockpot, add a little water/beefstock, cook on medium for the day.

      O.K Candace,
      This sounds do-able enough. I don’t have beef bones but I do have beef stock. Good strong beef stock.

      Are the bones something I could skip here or should I wait till I have some? Do you think cream of celery soup would be alright in it? I’m out of celery.

      What did you end up doing? How did it turn out? Thanks; Virginia

      You could pretty much use anything, beef stock will work, cream of celery will work.

      You don’t have to have specific ingredients I don’t think
