Beef cheeks with shiraz (for 2)

(50 customer reviews)


Served with fresh green beans and creamy buttery mashed potato, these deliciously rich beef portions are slow cooked in rich, shiraz-infused stock with celery and carrots. Lovingly handcrafted by Mic Giuliani of Sirocco South (see About Mic, below), this meal is for the first night on the track only (they’ve been pasteurised but not dehydrated) and comes in a 2 serve pack.

  1. Julie Wood

    This dish deserves six out of five stars! It’s absolute trekking luxury. The mashed potato was lovely, flavoursome and creamy. The beef cheek melted in the mouth, and the Shiraz sauce was restaurant quality! The green beans were a nice fresh addition to the meal. Great generous portion, that made others in the hut very jealous! Cannot recommend this meal enough.

      Hey Julie – so glad you loved it as much as we do. You were our first eater out on the track, so we hope to convert walkers to the luxe idea one mouth at a time …

  2. Neil Slonim

    Very tasty meal and quick to make too! Within 15 minutes we were sitting down enjoying the most melt in your mouth beef cheeks we’d ever had, with some tasty tasty mash and fresh green beans. We were the envy of all the poor punters eating their dehydrated mac’n’cheese.

  3. Philippa wiiliams

    We are so glad we chose this for our first night… absolutely delicious, mash was great and fresh beans YUM

  9. ginnyd15

    We had this on night one and it was delicious! In fact we might even order in for a night at home it was so good!

  10. Jill Price

    Wow, a seriously delicious dinner, served up in super fast time. Could have eaten it every night!

  11. Kate

    Yummo’ really enjoyed this first day meal – only disappointment is that we didn’t take the bottle of Shiraz to go with it! Plenty for two and lovely to have the fresh beans

  12. Erin van der Wyk

    This was absolutely delicious 😋 We were the envy of all the other walkers in our group, and quite possibly some echidnas! Highly recommend for the first night. Was easy to put together.

  13. Jenna

    Flavoursome and hearty, just the thing after a day of walking. Easy to prepare and a generous portion for two.

  14. Leonie Branson

    First nigh fabulous indeed! So delicious, so fresh, so easy… Great first night dinner that exceeded all our expectations.

  15. Maree

    Beef Cheeks were excellent. The best meal of the trip. They were easy to prepare and so tasty. The meat just melted in your mouth. Sufficient for two people.

  16. Casey

    Best meal of the lot! Amazing flavour and texture

  17. Anne Ellis


  18. Brooke

    Delicious. We had many comments on our food from 3 capes – this was a standout meal

  19. Mary Ellen

    DELICIOUS. Our family of five had this and we all loved it. Easy to prepare, fabulous to eat. We were the envy of all the other walkers. Thanks G and G.

  20. Jane Iacono

    Delicious! Worth the extra weight to have this home-style meal on our first night. The potato mash and fresh beans were also great.

  21. Kim-Maree Burr

    Absolutely loved this dish. So easy to make and delicious.

  22. McMPoz88

    Delicious! Highly recommended for night 1. It’s like dinner at a restaurant 🙂

  23. Davina Watt

    Absolutely fabulous restaurant quality meal easy to prepare. You will not be disappointed with this choice.

  24. goodies

    Definitely lived up to its name- we loved it!

  25. clare

    This was delicious, the meat was perfection! All our meals were great, perhaps leave things to soak or stepe for a little longer than stated on the packs would be my only comment!
    Our whole experience with3 Capes fear and gourmet was exceptional! We came fro the UK carrying walking boots and basic kit and ordered everything else through Ian and Gail. To be met in airport arrivals and to have everything prepared meant we had a completely stress free time! Between us we carried about 26kgs for the walk and we wanted for nothing. It was altogether perfect, the kit, the food and the walk. I only wish we had time for discovering more of Tasmania!

  26. Mike Wallas

    What a great meal for the first night. Spoilt us but also made us salivate for the meals to come.
    All the meals have been really good and many other hikers enviously watched us prepare our meals. The only issue were pancakes which need non-stick pans which are not available at the sites.
    Great variety and recipes. What an excellent service!!!


    We took this for our first night at Surveyors Hut. It was a cold, windy, wet night and this meal was exactly what we needed. It was described by my 13y.o. daughter as the best meal she has ever eaten! (don’t tell Mum that)
    We were met (right on time) at Hobart Airport to hand over our order. It was very easy and worked like clockwork.

  28. Jennifer

    This meal was scumptious! With the red wine that we ordered from 3 Capes gear and gourmet, we were the envy of all our fellow walkers.

  29. Catherine Edwards

    Melt in the mouth beef cheeks, creamy mash and crisp, fresh green beans – this meal was amazing. Treat yourself- you won’t be disappointed.

  30. Judy

    Enjoyed this on our first night – good size portion and the mashed potato was surprisingly good – well seasoned- good size portion of meat

  31. Beck Buckingham

    You must forget everything you think you know about what “camping food” is…as this beef cheek dish was absolutely sublime. Spectacular quality, meltingly tender beef, creamy mash and snap crisp beans. I am an unashamed food snob, and the memory of this dish will live with me for a long time.

  32. Sandra

    We had read all the reviews and thought we’d give this a go and it definitely lived up to our expectations. In saying that we were not disappointed with any of the meals we tried, and the fresh fruit/veggies were so fresh and delicious. I would certainly order through this company again they made it all so easy

  33. Gill

    Excellent service from 3 capes gourmet… food delivered promptly to the hotel the evening before departure. The first night dinner of beef cheeks was absolutely delicious and very easy to prepare. Highly recommended!

  34. Helen Hemsley

    Everything about Gear and Gourmet is fabulous! Ian and Gail’s great organisation, delivery , advice plus great gear and yummy food made our walk so much easier. The packs and sleeping bags were of excellent quality and the food was so great – especially loved can the porridge and beef cheeks. You guys have it nailed. Thank you so much

  35. Deborah Corrigall

    This meal was so delicious we bought another one when we got back to Hobart for consumption in our next camp site.

  36. jo cresswell

    Beef cheeks with potato mash and fresh beans. So yummy, quick and very popular in our kitchen. Everyone came over for a squiz and remarked on our first night fabulous food. Went down very well with a Merlot or two- Recommend

  37. Naomi

    I loved this dish. I ordered it for 10 of us and the general consensus was great.

  38. David

    Fantastic meal. This was definitely worth carrying the (slightly) extra weight. Was extremely glad we chose this as our first night “bit of luxury”. The pack was still (slightly) frozen at time of preparation (did the walk in mid May). Was very easy, and quick, to prepar. Everything was tasty – the beef cheeks was tender, Shiraz sauce plentiful, mash was creamy, and the green beans a hice fresh crunch. A very generous portion that definitely did not leave us hungry. Would highly recommended this.

  39. aussue

    I’d been looking forward to this meal since I read all the reviews. Just adding another vote – delicious. The green beans were appreciated. Yummy.

  40. Jeff Ross

    We read how good the reviews were, but were still surprised by the quality and superb taste of the beef cheeks. Highly recommended. Our stand-out meal in Tassie after visiting several recommended Hobart restaurants after doing the track.

  41. Annika Bradley

    I was so impressed by this meal. It was a great way to start a fabulous hike. And the mash was spectacular!

  42. Deb H

    This meal was a perfect start to a fantastic hike. Simple to prepare and delicious.
    3CG&G add those little extras to make it a superb meal, along with their outstanding service & delivery to our hotel door – Wow

  43. benmadin

    It certainly didn’t really feel like we enduring any kind of hardship sitting on the verandah at Surveyors looking over the landscape eating this meal. It did make it a little uncomfortable watching those other walkers waiting for their de-hy meals to soften looking jealously our way. Not just delicious, but quick and easy to prepare.

  44. Nicole M

    This meal came highly recommended and did not disappoint! A perfect meal to have on the first night with some cheeky Tassie Pinot. Three Capes was so helpful over the phone and delivered my order bang on time to my accommodation in Hobart. Great service and products.

  45. Josephine Clarke

    This was a very special treat to start our celebratory walk. We were the envy of the dining room! Prep was simple, and the results were delicious!

  46. Rhonda

    We decided to go with this meal after reading all the fabulous reviews here and it did not disappoint. The beef cheeks melted in your mouth and the taste of the marinade quite delightful. Great family meal.

  47. Linda Murdoch

    OMG this was delicious! If only we could have eaten it for the whole trip. It tasted as good as it sounds. It also suited my gluten intolerant fellow hiker. Our overall experience with Ian from 3CG&G was exceptional. He was very friendly and helpful. Thank you!

  48. alicia savelloni

    Excellent!! So tasty and delicious. A definite must for night one of the walk.

  49. Tim McVitty

    Fantastic night 1 option. Loved it.

  50. Mirella Price

    Another delicious meal. The mash was amazing
