Beef cheek recipes

The name 'beef cheek' really does refer to the facial cheek muscle of a cow. It's a tough, lean cut of meat often braised or cooked slowly to produce a tender and delicious result. Here are some of our favourite ways to serve them up.

Roast chicken with tarragon butter and Dutch carrots


We've butterflied the chicken so it cooks faster while still getting the benefits of the flesh being cooked on the bone. Ask your butcher to butterfly the bird for you.

You'll need

1 butterflied chicken (about 1.6kg) Juice and finely grated rind of 1 lemon 2 bunches Dutch carrots, trimmed, scrubbed, halved 2 tbsp olive oil 2 tsp coarsely chopped thyme To serve: green leaf salad dressed with vinaigrette   Tarragon butter 200 gm softened butter ¼ cup finely chopped tarragon 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped Finely grated rind of 1 lemon 1 tbsp finely chopped thyme

Method

  • 01
  • Preheat oven to 220C. For tarragon butter, process ingredients in a food processor until smooth, season to taste and set aside.
  • 02
  • Place chicken on an oven tray lined with baking paper, pat dry with paper towels, then spread skin thickly with tarragon butter (it’s easiest to do this with your hands). Roast chicken, basting occasionally with pan juices, until golden brown and juices run clear when the thigh is pierced with a skewer (20-25 minutes). Place on a platter and squeeze lemon juice over.
  • 03
  • Meanwhile, line a roasting pan with baking paper. Add carrots and toss with oil, thyme and lemon rind in pan, season to taste and roast until tender and golden brown (15-20 minutes). Add to platter, drizzle roast chicken with pan juices and serve with green salad.
