Thai Style Braised

Serves: 6 – 8

Ingredients:

  • 2 lbs. Farmland® Fresh Pork Cheek Meat, silver skin removed
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2/3 cup dark soy sauce
  • 1/3 cup mirin
  • 1/4 cup fish sauce
  • 2 tablespoons palm sugar or brown sugar

  • 1 stick of cinnamon

Preparation:

  1. Heat oven to 300°F. In oven-proof skillet, brown pork cheeks in olive oil.
  2. Combine all remaining ingredients; pour over browned meat. Add enough water so that cheeks are halfway submerged; cover tightly. Cook in 300°F oven until very tender, about 2 hours.
  3. Place pan in refrigerator to solidify fat; remove fat and discard. Remove meat from broth.
