Beef cheek meat is of course from the cheek of a steer. Since it is one of the most frequently used muscles by the animal, they like to eat, cheek meat is a very tough cut that needs to be cooked low and slow to properly tenderize!
While it is not the most common cut purchased by consumers, if treated right it can definitely be one of the most flavorful, absorbing all the liquids in the cooking mechanism it is slowly cooking in!
Approximately 3 1/2 lbs. of cheek meat per package.
