pork cheek help

Mr Bigglesworth | Oct 25, 2008 08:43 PM


I purchased pork cheeks from my local butcher on a whim. I've never cooked them before but figured that it would be best to braise them. I was thinking of cooking some leeks and garlic in EVOO until they sweat and then brown the cheeks. I planned on them cooking them for two hours or so in a nice red wine like a burgandy.

After that, I planned on adding several quarts of stock (along with cubed russets, cremini mushrooms, vidalia onions, a few sprigs of thyme and possibly garbanzo beans or orzo.)

I was going to serve with sliced crusty bread and a beet salad.

Am I on the right path? Thoughts?
