Iberico Pork. Iberico pigs are fed a special diet of acorns and other plant-based products found naturally in the forest. This special diet is what gives the meat its tender and sweet flavour, and it gives the meat the perfect amount of marbling and fat. The Cheek is characteristically richer in fat with a lovely lean centre. Various frozen weights available.
Cook it on the grill, or sear it and finish it in the oven. Remove it from heat at medium rare for optimum flavour and texture. Let the meat rest, slice against the grain and serve.
