Slow Braised Beef Cheeks in Chipotle & Adobo Sauce

This is the absolute perfect dish for those cold days when you want to fill the house with oven-love. The cheeks are meaty and require a gentle, slow cook and in this sauce, where the smoky chipotle peppers and adobo sauce elevate the stickiness of the meat, make the perfect combination. When cooked, the meat is moist, tender and falls apart at the hint of a fork, pile on top of fluffy mash or a kumara puree and the winter season is complete and worth celebrating.
