Braised Beef Cheeks

Braised Beef Cheeks
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 5 pounds trimmed beef cheeks
  • 1 large onion, diced small
  • 1 carrot, diced small
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 4 cups beef stock
  • 1 cup red wine
  • 1/3 cup dried porcini mushrooms
  • 2 cubes beef bouillon
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 2 bay leaves


  1. Preheat oven to 275 degrees F (135 degrees C).
  2. Heat olive oil in a large Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add beef in batches and cook until browned, about 4 minutes per side. Add onion and carrot; cook until tender, about 20 minutes. Stir in garlic and cook until fragrant, about 2 minutes.
  3. Pour beef stock and wine into the Dutch oven; bring to a boil. Stir in porcini mushrooms, bouillon cubes, thyme, and bay leaves. Lay a piece of parchment paper over the surface. Cover with a tight lid.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until beef is very tender, 5 to 6 hours.
  5. Transfer beef to a plate. Discard bay leaves. Blend cooking liquid with an immersion blender to make a smooth sauce. Serve beef with sauce.
