Slow-cooked Beef Cheeks in red wine

Cold,raining and wintry week here in Sydney. Called for a comfort food dinner last night.

Slow cooked beef cheeks with red wine, shiitake mushrooms, brown mushrooms and button mushrooms.

Used this recipe Beef cheeks in red wine but added a few dried red chillies and some eschallots fried in butter along with the button mushrooms towards the end.

Also, I don’t have a slow cooker so cooked slowly over the stove for 4 hours, adding water along the way to make sure it didn’t stick.

Lovely with a glass of red wine or two and indulgent mash on the side.
