Carrillera Iberica Approx 1kg

Iberico pork cheeks (Carrillera Iberica) are a unique cut of meat, quite meaty but surprisingly lean. The cheeks come from black pigs of the Iberian breed whose unique origin can be traced back to ancient times. This legendary and select race has many qualities, including a great capacity to accumulate fat under its skin and between the muscular fibres. The fat is what produces the typical white streaks that make its meat so special.

 

The main feature that distinguishes Iberico pork from the rest of fresh pork meat is the purity of the breed, allowed to freely move around the extensive wooded pastures called ‘Dehesas’. At least a hectare of healthy Dehesa is needed to raise a single pig. All pigs are fed on a diet of grass and the best acorns from Holm and Cork Oak meadows to provide its distinctive aroma and exquisite taste.

 

For the best results Iberico cheeks need to be slowly braised over a low heat for at least 3 hours with either or a mix of stock, red wine or even pedro ximenez sherry!
