As we are publishing this episode of Reduce by Half, it’s May 3rd. That means 2 things. First, it’s beef month, and second, it’s almost Cinco de Mayo. For this episode, we’re combining those themes, and talking about Beef Cheeks! On this episode, I’m going to give you a brief overview of what a beef cheek is, then share two recipes, as well as a few more ideas that you can do with beef cheeks. It should be a fun way of learning more about a cut of beef you’ve probably not thought of very much! You can listen on iTunes by clicking here, or using the player below. Enjoy!
