Our Beef Cheeks are 400 grams each approx & the texture is coarse with rich red colour as you would expect from a good quality grass-fed piece of beef. The flavour is good & strong that works well with red wine in the ingredients. As the name suggests, these are from the jaw area & look like 2 little pouches that would fit in the palm of your hand.
These are perfect for feeding two people a delicious restaurant-quality meal at home.
We cut & prepare our Beef Cheeks within a few minutes of packing because this ensures that all the natural moisture remains in the meat to give better results in the kitchen. We vacuum seal them into clear recyclable pouches so that the juices are sucked into the meat because they will retain their natural flavour when frozen. The natural vitamins, minerals & protein found in beef is an important part of a healthy diet, & found in the beef cheeks as a rich supply, the clear pouches will help to conserve these in the meat.
We are very conscious of producing & packaging our meats in the best way possible because you need to have the best results & experience at home or in the restaurants we supply. All our meats are prepared in low temperature-controlled, clean cutting rooms reducing the risk of natural bacteria growth & greatly extending the shelf life.
The process from farm to fork is designed to maximise value for money & minimise waste, with welfare & the environment top of the list. All our production facilities are BRC Approved & we are always using local herds to support local farmers.
Reducing our use of plastic to lower our carbon footprint for a greener future is something we are always trying to do. With this in mind, we don’t always pack single pieces into 1 bag, we have 2 Cheeks per single bag saving at least 1 bag per purchase. The pouches or bags we use for our vacuum packing are now generally stronger, thinner because this means less volume of plastic needed.
The clear recyclable pouches are perfect for our customers at home or in the trade to recycle responsibly. How to recycle plastic
Sherwood Irish Grass-Fed beef is an excellent source of vitamins, minerals & protein that helps promote energy levels. Our Irish Grass-Fed beef enjoys some of the best green pastures that Ireland has to offer, with the higher than average rainfall there is never a shortage of lush grass for them to enjoy. The welfare of all the cattle is very important not only to the livestock but to the results it brings to the table.
All our beef is fully traceable through modern technology with animals now having virtual passports to ensure they are monitored from farm to fork.
We have the choice of excellent stock to choose from over here, & this gives us a wonderful opportunity to create & share our consistent “restaurant quality” tasty products. Sherwood Provenance
These are truly delicious when slow-cooked in a red wine as they are a course cut that has a very rich flavour. After braising in the oven or cooking low n’ slow on the BBQ, let these rest because the meat relaxes before gently teasing the meat apart for the pulled beef…. that just melts in your mouth. Beef Cheeks are becoming more popular at home nowadays & are not just a dish you would only get in a restaurant.
Our online customers are re-ordering them as they make a fantastic treat that isn’t restaurant prices.
Try these accompanied by fresh vegetables & a creamy mash with good full-bodied red wine.
Just enjoy cooking with our Irish Grass-fed Beef & don’t forget to tag us in your social media posts. #abrandisapromise
