Braise it: saute in coconut oil (or lard) with some the holy trinity (onion, celery, bell pepper) until brown, then simmer in some liquid until it's falling apart.

For digestive issues, you need to make goat kefir at home. Works wonders. The bacteria/yeasts will restore balance to your gut, along a good Paleo diet rich in things like offal, fermented foods, bone broth etc.

Avoid mold. Many mycotoxins (compounds formed by molds) are well-known carcinogens (e.g. aflatoxin). While the mold you might be culturing on your cheese could be benign, it could also be one with some toxicity. I'd say let the cheesemakers deal... (more)

I usually braise it in the crock pot. You are lucky, it's a hard cut to find and it's pretty delicious. I find you can braise it with any spices you want + water or broth and it comes out well.
