Let’s start cooking!


  • 1.2 kg beef cheeks.
  • 1 dried red chilli.
  • 4 garlic cloves.
  • 4 tablespoons of of olive oil. 2 tablespoons of for the marinade and 2 tablespoons of for frying the beef cheeks.
  • 1½ tablespoons of of honey.
  • 1 teaspoon of of salt.
  • 1 teaspoon of of unsweetened cocoa powder.
  • 1½ teaspoons of of instant espresso powder.
  • ½ teaspoon of of cinnamon.
  • 2 teaspoons of of ground cumin.
  • 1½ tablespoons of of natural peanut butter.
  • 1 handful fresh coriander, plus more for serving.
  • 1 cup of beef stock.
  • 3 limes.


  1. Clean and trim the beef cheeks. Cut them into large (2 inch) chunks. Put them in a container in which you can marinate them.
  2. Rehydrate the dried red chilli in a little hot water, just enough to cover it. Combine all (including the chilli and it’s water) the ingredients apart from the beef stock and limes in a food processor, and whizz until you have a paste. Pour the paste all over the cheeks and mix so that they are completely coated. Leave to marinate in the refrigerator for several hours or, better yet, overnight.
  3. When it is time to cook, heat the oven to 140°C and heat 2 tablespoons of of olive oil in a heavy bottomed casserole over a medium heat. Brown the chunks on all sides. Use the stock to rinse the rest of the marinade into the casserole, then squeeze in the juice of the limes.
  4. Braise for about 3½ hours, giving the cheeks a stir once or twice while they cook. If the liquid dries up, add a bit more stock.
  5. When the cheeks are fall-apart tender, use two forks to pull the meat apart in the pan so that it mixes in with all the fatty juicy goodness.
  6. Serve in fresh corn tortillas.
