Yesterday, I used my slow cooker to cook two beef cheeks. I enjoyed one last night and saved one for tonight.

Ingredients

  • Leftover slow cooker beef cheek
  • Precooked carrot, celery, and onion cooked with Worcestershire sauce and balsamic vinegar
  • Cherry tomatoes
  • Grated cheddar cheese

Instructions

  • Preheat a toaster-oven to about 150 °C.
  • Line a baking sheet with baking paper.
  • Lay the refrigerated beef cheek on the baking sheet.
  • Next to the beef cheek lay down some precooked carrot, celery, and onion.
  • Add in some old and overripe cherry tomatoes (rather than throw them away and wasting them).
  • Cover with grated cheddar cheese.
  • Cook in the toaster oven for about 40 to 45 minutes.
  • Transfer to a dinner plate.
  • Season with freshly ground whole black peppercorns (in a mortar with a pestle).
