Iberico Pork Cheeks

The Pata Negra feast on sweet acorns which lends the pork a deep red colour. While the Iberico Pork Cheeks carry an exceptionally rich and nutty flavour, the Carrillada cheeks are surprisingly lean due to the stunning fat marbled through the meat.

The fork-tender “Carrilladas” or cheeks are perfect for a slow roast pulled pork dish. Slow cooking in a rich red wine sauce transforms this prized cut into a heartwarming dish. When you braise these Iberico Pork Cheeks, the nut flavoured fat slowly melts into the pork to create an incredible taste bud tantalising and pleasing dish.

Our team worked with Paul Belcher of Donostia Social Club who used our Iberico Pork Cheeks for their Basque-inspired menu. Instead of a classic Sunday roast, having a bowl of slow-cooked Iberico Pork Cheeks placed in front of you, with the smooth smell of red wine with the sweetness of carrots and onion is mouth-watering and will be the talking point.

How to cook Iberico Cheeks recipe.


Cooking Tips For Steaks

- For frozen steaks, thaw overnight in the fridge.
- Bring the steak to room temperature 20 minutes before cooking
- Pat dry
- Season the steak generously with table salt and a little olive oil (or other high-heat cooking oils). This helps form that amazing crust we all know and love about great steaks.
- Get your skillet smoking hot before putting the steak in.
- Cook the steak on either side for 2-4 minutes or until the meat is forming a stunning golden crust to it.
- Half way through cooking, we like basting it with butter and a few branches of fresh thym.
- Remove from the heat and let it rest for 5-10 minutes under aluminum foil as it will allow juices to reabsorb into the meat and the fibres to relax.

  • Spain

The Iberian Peninsula of Spain, is a land of rich history and stunning natural beauty. Here, amidst rolling hills, ancient forests, and sun-drenched plains, lies the home of the renowned Iberico Pork. In the extensive oak forests, known as “dehesas”, the Pata Negra pigs are allowed to roam freely, feasting on acorns and other natural vegetation, which contributes to the unique flavour and marbling of the meat.
