1
In a large frying pan, saute the carrots, onion, celery, garlic and tomatoes in oil until golden brown. Remove the vegetables from the pan and allow to cool. Place them in a large bowl with the wines and beef cheeks

  • 1.5kg beef cheek
2
Completely cover the meat by 3cm using the vegetables, adding water if necessary. Leave to marinate for at least 12 hours
3
After marinading, empty the bowl into a colander over another bowl to collect all the liquid from the marinade, reserving the meat and vegetables
