Organic Pork Cheeks

Big-up a little-known cut that deserves way more attention

Organic pork cheeks are a pretty well forgotten cut that you're unlikely to see on the butcher's counter, let alone in the supermarket. For once, the name of this cut is broadly accurate: pork cheeks are the pads of meat from each side of the pig's jaw. They're delicately delicious and, when cooked slowly, meltingly tender and succulent. If you're feeling squeamish about the idea of eating cheeks, please don't. This is a really under-appreciated cut that deserves a try. Our butchers meticulously trim out the meat from the cheek, so there's no prep for you to worry about.

At The Organic Butchery, we believe pigs should live in sociable family groups; they should live outdoors for as much of the year as possible and they should be able to rootle with their snouts and wallow in mud. The sustainable, organic system in which our pigs live has animal welfare at its core and produces amazing meat as a result. We believe in using the most sustainable methods possible whilst organically rearing our animals; we aim to use as much of the carcass as possible, to reduce wastage.

If you like this cut you should also try our organic ox cheeks.

It's amazing how many cuts of meat have become obscure in recent decades. In pre-industrialised Britain, we were a nation of smallholders and pigs would commonly have been fattened up through the summer then slaughtered and preserved for use through the winter. Every bit of the carcass had value and pieces that we don't consider prime these days – like pork cheeks – would have been prized. But because supermarkets aren't butchers, over the years they've found it easier to sell just joints of meat and mince up the fiddly bits. As butchers, at The Organic Butchery we champion the obscure bits and encourage you to seek them out. They really are worth rediscovering.

Please note, as these are whole natural products the exact weight may vary depending on the size of the animal.

For ultimately tender organic pork cheeks they're best slowly braised. Start by dusting two or three cheeks per person with flour and browning them in a hot pan with a splash of oil. Once browned, remove the cheeks and add chopped onions and leeks to the pan with a knob of butter. Fry gently until softened, then add a good splosh of honey, a handful of woody herbs and equal parts white wine and chicken or pork stock. Return the meat to the pan, put it into a low oven and cook for at least two hours. Once cooked, remove the meat, bring the sauce to a boil on the hob until reduced and thickening. Add a generous glug of cream before serving with the cheeks alongside vibrant greens and parmesan mash.
