For the ox cheeks

For the Gentlemen’s relish


  1. Dredge the ox cheeks in flour and heat the oil in the casserole dish. Fry the cheeks until golden-brown all over, then remove from the dish using a slotted spoon.

  2. Add the vegetables to the casserole and cook for 2-3 minutes. Pour in the wine and scrape up any browned bits with a wooden spoon.

  3. Add the stock and bring to boil, return the ox cheeks to the dish, bring to a simmer and cook for 2-3 hours, or until the ox cheeks are very tender.

  4. Remove the cheeks from the sauce and boil for 4-5 minutes, or until the sauce has thickened. Strain the sauce, then return the ox cheeks back to the sauce.

  5. Meanwhile, for the relish, blend all the ingredients in a food processor until well combined. Spoon the butter onto a large piece of clingfilm, roll into a long sausage, then chill in the fridge.

  6. Serve the cheeks a slice of relish.
