Yes, I did use Google (it's pig jowl), but I'm still intimidated. In asparagus season I sometimes make a pasta dish of bacon, shallots, and asparagus browned in a cast iron pan, with a sprinkling of red pepper flakes and Parmesan. Today my SO showed up with this hunk of flesh and I'm not sure how to proceed. I gather that it isn't smoked, so that's going to alter the taste, right? Also, should I just slice it? Dice it? Any help would be great. (This is a recipe I usually make without even thinking. Now, I have to think!)
