May You Have a Blessed and Healthy New Year !
This muscle cut is hard working and in the case of Beef Cattle that is at least 6 to 8 hours a day chewing grass.
All this movement of the cheek muscles means a lot of connective tissue which, on one hand requires slow gentle cooking but on the other hand rewards us with a cut of beef riddled with strands of tasty, healthy collagen, gelatin and rich savory beef.
This cut needs to be cooked low and slow either braised or stewed.
But it is worth the wait!
All that connective tissue and gelatin results in a uniquely tender falling off the fork, tender, juicy cut of beef.
You will not be disappointed, you should absolutely give beef cheeks a try!
*Comes frozen and individually vacuum sealed.
Our herd of cattle is made up mostly of Belted Galloway cows (aka Oreo Cows).
This breed of cow produces exceptionally lean and flavorful meat.
The cows at POP Acres spend their days out on fertile pastures happily grazing on fresh grass and foraging for wild edibles.
The cows are also supplemented with minerals, salts, kelp, molasses, and alfalfa pellets.
All that grass-fed goodness is found in our delicious and nutrient dense grass-fed beef.
