- About La Carne™
Beef cheek is the hard-working, lean facial cheek muscle, housing an abundance of connective tissue, known as collagen. This cut responds well to moist, slow extended cooking methods. As the collagen breaks down, it produces a tender and flavoursome result. Cheek is perfect diced in curries, braises and stews, but also holds its shape well when cooked whole.
