Slow Cooked Chinese Beef Cheeks

Recently I had the pleasure of working with Thermomix in Australia to release a new Skinnymixers Classics Mini Cookidoo Collection. As part of that collection I developed a new Chinese Five Spice Beef Cheeks recipe to showcase the very cool new TM6 slow cooking function. 

If you have a TM6, you can find the guided cooking Chinese Five Spice Beef Cheeks recipe on Cookidoo – it is incredible how melt in your mouth tender these are after only 4hrs, when traditionally you would need to cook Beef Cheeks all day.

I promised the Skinnymixers Community that I would share the slow cooker & pressure cooker version on the website – so everyone can enjoy these delicious Slow Cooked Chinese Five Spice Beef Cheeks.

If you are someone who hasn’t loved Beef Cheeks in the past, I urge you to give these a try. I definitely think they will change your mind on them!

You can find Beef Cheeks in Coles and Woolworths, or ask at your local butcher.

  1. Another fabulous recipe! Beef was melt in the mouth tender! I did the coconut aminos version as I am soy allergic, so nice to have a soy free Chinese meal!

  3. Made these in my TM6 tonight using the recipe on Cookidoo Guided cooking. OH MY GOODNESS!!!!. Please try these in your slow cooker / TM6 because seriously delicious. The Beef Cheeks just fell apart and melted in my mouth. I have made some variations on this recipe previously – once using my slow cooker and another time using beef ribs (in the slow cooker) as could not source beef cheeks at the time. Every time it has been amazing. but I must admit – tonight, following the recipe for the TM6, was the best version so far.

  4. DBAL is a safe alternative that can help with building muscle and strength. The DBAL formulation is contrived by the Crazy Bulk USA,
    a well-known manufacturer of muscle building supplements.D-BAL with its natural ingredients, has all properties of Methandrostenolone
    like Dianabol but without those harmful side effects.D Bal, D-Bal in Pakistan, Foodfight

  5. What size slow cooker/pressure cooker did you use?
    I’m wanting to buy a new slow cooker but am keen to keep it small (3L rather than the 5-6L) as my family seems to dislike my idea of “batch cooking” (please don’t go there). I’m hoping this will fit!
