Pork Jowl

Pork Jowl, sometimes referred to as pork cheek, is a cut of pork from the head of the pig, located around the chin and jawline, known for its rich marbling and tender texture. Pork jowl can be cured — like bacon, or pork belly — referred to as “guanciale” in Italy, and either “hog jowl,” or “jowl bacon” in Southern American regions. Pork jowl can also be smoked, braised, seared, or slow-cooked.
