Beef cheeks are cooked slowly with onion and garlic until juicy and tender. In Mexico and the Caribbean, this meat is typically served on tortillas with hot sauce and fresh coriander.
This recipe calls for a lot of salt, but it is needed.
This turned out excellent. Tasted just like the authentic Barbacoa my Mother in law got for us on Sundays. Will definitely make again. - 29 Apr 2017 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
