Very nice. It is a tasty cut but all the cheaper cuts have gone right up in price last few years 

Cheeks aint a bad price, also got some of those to cook.

I cooked ox cheeks in fennel, star anise & sherry on Sunday. Excellent recipe. 
 

Four ox cheeks cost £21 from the butchers. I’d say that was enough for eight people. A rolled rib of beef that was big enough for three cost the same from the same butcher, so the cheaper cuts are still cost effective. 
 

Mind you, the beef was cooked in 30 minutes, but the cheeks took four hours, so the cheaper cuts do need more time to break down.

I was brought up on the cheapest cuts of beef, I think I was about 16 or 17yrs old before I had tried so much as a sirloin steak.

The cheap cuts have become fashionable now because celebrity chefs started using them. Even some restaurants I would go to would charge more for rib eye than the usually prized fillet steak

Took myself back in time a few weeks ago and cooked up a cheap rolled pot roast of Dexter beef from a local farm shop, haven't tasted a Sunday roast like it in a long time.

Im in my 30s but my nan was very poor when she was young, she used to make me all sorts of cheap cut dishes. Suet puddings were a favourite.

If it wasn't for mince,carrots and onions and spuds i think I would have starved to death as a child. When I started using the new farm shop close to me I was shocked at how good their mince was, unlike supermarket stuff, when it was being fried it didn't have that brown/white watery gack that floated up to the surface. 

I've noticed near me...probably As a side affect of covid, more people are going to the butcher's and farm shops for meat and veg. I hope it stays that way, to me there's no worse torture than shopping in any of the big supermarkets
