The carrilleras (cheeks) of the iberico pig are two small pieces of flavoursome meat weighing a total of approximately 100g in total, located in the jowl. They contain virtually no fat and are formed of intertwined fibres.
These iberico pork cheeks have a delicate and moist bite that stands out because of their singular texture. Rarely will you find this level of juiciness and leanness in the same cut.
Cook for a couple of hours and the meat reduces to nuggets of fork-tender flesh. Cheeks are great slow-braised in red wine, carrots, onions and leeks and served with butter beans or mashed potatoes.
Approximately 700g. This is a frozen product.
