Beef cheeks and other off-cuts - please give me your recipes for winter

Winter here and I've dusted off my slow-cooker. What are your favourite recipes for the inexpensive cuts of beef that are well suited to long, slow, low-heat cooking?
Bonus Mefi-miles* for minimising the fat content. I tend to cook big batches on the weekend, freeze portions and microwave as needed of an weekday evening.
*loyalty points, or favourites I guess

I use an electric slow-cooker and not my oven. I don't mind a reasonable amount of prep, but I am a big fan of the "chop it up, throw it in, turn it on and walk away for a day or so method."
I have no allergies, and access to good butchers who will chop off any bits I want + a good supermarket butcher who seems anxious to please as well.
I already make a mean Beef Ghoulash, Stroganoff, Beef and Mushroom um, Thing, and various iterations of Indian Curries. I'd like your secret hometown/state/national dishes or your family secrets please.
I can get prime beef cheeks for about AU$1 a kilo right now.
(If I can possibly sneak a sub-question in here: your fave Vegetarian slow-cooker recipes will be welcome too. Ssshh).
