Cow Head....what can I do with it?

JanPrimus | Dec 20, 2008 09:19 PM

I went to a butcher here in Michigan and ask about Beef Cheek and got a blank stare. The young man at the counter had never been asked that question and had to go back to the master butcher for some words.

When the young man came back he stated that they did not sell Beef Cheek separately but I could buy a Cattle Head for about $30 bucks a pop. Well I started thing beef tongue and cheek. I wondered if there was anything else I could use. I thought the brain would most likely be a no go do to MCD. The eye balls might be a bit more than I could stomach.

Has anyone here ever taken a Cattle head and butchered it down?

I look forward to the squirms, ideas and drama that this thread could bring about!
