- While typically a stronger and tougher muscle, beef cheeks transform into meltingly tender, meaty goodness that nearly falls apart when braised or cooked low and slow. Serious beef lovers cherish the extraordinarily juicy flavor that picks up extra succulence the longer it's cooked. We love to prepare beef cheeks braised in a red wine reduction sauce over creamy polenta or mashed potatoes with a side of roasted greens like spinach or asparagus.Claims
FreshDirect's 100% Grass-Fed Local Beef program is made up of a group of family-owned farms in the northeast that strictly follow a humane and sustainable agricultural model. The herd is raised without hormones or antibiotics and is exclusively grass-fed, which means they're never given grain or corn. This not only benefits the farmer, the animals, and the environment, but also the consumer, as genuine, grass-fed cattle results in meat that's leaner, more tender, more flavorful, and remarkably juicy. Because we request the absolute highest quality from our farmers, we have exclusive access to the cream of the crop, which we're now able to provide to our customers 365 days a year.
