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.
