Exactly what they sound like Linda 🙂 They’ll be labelled as such by your butcher, very popular cut of beef in the last couple years 🙂

I made this today using “casserole beef” from Woolworths. Apart from that, I followed the recipe. Served it with creamy mashed potato and a French stick. It was ansolutely delicious!! Loved, loved loved it, as did my hubby and dinner guests. Will be a firm favourite. Thank you ♥️

Had 2 beef cheeks so halved the recipe.. A nice rich gravy and plenty of it. Very tasty. Would be tasty with other cuts of meat also.

Made this the other night and it was delicious thank you!
I did just use diced beef instead and threw in a few extra veggies as I love vegetables but it was still amazing.
