Sweet Spicy Pork Jowl

Sweet Spicy Pork Jowl

Serves 4 


3-4 pieces Iberico Pork Jowl
1/4 cup chinese wine
2-3 chili peppers
2 cloves garlic
1 small carrot
1/2 cup cilantro leaves
1/2 cup dark soy sauce
4 tbsp fish or oyster sauce
1 tbsp honey
1/2 cup shallots
5 tbsp sugar


  1. Thinly chop your chili peppers and cilantro leaves and place them in a bowl. Then using the flat surface of your sharp knife, press the garlic cloves and then chop into fine pieces. Dice your shallot and carrot into thin slices.
  2. Rinse your pork jowls with cold running water and then pat dry with a paper towel. Then place it into your ziplock bag or airtight container.
  3. Add all of your wet ingredients and dry ingredient ingredients to your container of choice on top of the pork jowls. If you’re using a ziplock bag you’ll want to lightly squeeze the air out and zip the bag shut. You can shake the bag if you wish or you can massage the ingredients into the meat with your hands.
  4. If you’ll be using an airtight container, you can put a tight lid on and shake the container around so the ingredients all mix. Alternatively, you could use your hands to mash everything into the meat and then place your lid on top.
  5. Leave your meat to marinate in the refrigerator overnight.
  6. The next day, pour some olive oil into a large pan and place the pork jowls into the pan. You can pour all the mixture in or you can use tongs to place just the meat into the pan. Cook on medium heat for 5-10 minutes making sure the jowls are cooked through. If you’ve poured in all the sauce, you can leave it to simmer and reduce it down on low heat.
  7. You can add honey at this point or later on when you are serving. Let the sauce cook until it is sticky and thicker.
  8. Serve with white or brown rice and garnish with honey and pepper.
