Merlot Braised Beef Cheeks
  1. For best results, use the Flavour Maker™ slow cooker by Breville
  2. Place EasySear™ pan onto stovetop and preheat for 2 to 3 minutes, add oil and heat for a further minute.
  3. Add the beef cheeks and cook for 3-5 minutes each side or until the beef cheeks are well browned on both sides
  4. Add the carrot, onion, garlic and cook for 5 minutes or until they are softened.
  5. Add the merlot and cook, scraping the bottom of the pan with a wooden spoon to remove any pan juices that may have stuck to the bottom
  6. Place EasySear™ pan back into the slow cooker base
  7. Add the juniper, cinnamon, bay leaf, thyme and stock. Ensure the beef cheeks are completely covered with liquid even if you have to top it up with a little water
  8. Cover with lid, turn Temperature Control Dial to '2' setting. Cook for 6 - 7 hours until the meat is tender
  9. Gently remove the cheeks from the cooking liquid. Skim any oil from the top of the liquid using a large flat spoon
  10. Strain the vegetables, reserving the cooking liquid and return the liquid to the EasySear™ pan and heat on stove top for 15-20 minutes or until sauce is reduced and slightly thickened.
  11. Return the beef cheeks to the pan and heat through before serving with mashed potato or a roasted vegetable and grain salad with fresh herbs
