Beeler’s Pure Pork Cheek Meat
2 vacuum sealed 5 lb. packs (10 lbs. total)
Cheeks are a relatively lean yet very moist meat, an ideal cut for braises or stews, as slow cooking makes them fork tender. Beeler’s Pure Pork Cheek Meat comes from humanely raised, free-range, red Duroc pigs, a European crossbreed known for their marbling. The Beeler family has been raising “the perfect pig” since 1846. Committed to never, ever using hormones, growth promotants, antibiotics and crates, they give their pigs room to root, roam, socialize and express their natural instinctive behaviors. With six generations of expertise, Beeler’s combines Old World animal husbandry and the natural lineage of their pigs with today's sophisticated breeding methodology to produce a product that is wholesome, flavorful, and all-natural.
Store frozen meats in your freezer until you’re ready to use it, then thaw only as much as you plan on cooking.
RECIPES & TIPS
Cheeks are an ideal cut for braising. Slow cooking dissolves the fat, collagen, and connective tissues, leaving behind meltingly tender meat that will boost the flavor of any stew or casserole. Sear the meat before braising. Apple cider, white wine and chicken stock, or red wine and tomatoes would make a good braising liquids.
