Organic Pork Cheeks

Big-up a little-known cut that deserves way more attention

Organic pork cheeks are a pretty well forgotten cut that you're unlikely to see on the butcher's counter, let alone in the supermarket. For once, the name of this cut is broadly accurate: pork cheeks are the pads of meat from each side of the pig's jaw. They're delicately delicious and, when cooked slowly, meltingly tender and succulent. If you're feeling squeamish about the idea of eating cheeks, please don't. This is a really under-appreciated cut that deserves a try. Our butchers meticulously trim out the meat from the cheek, so there's no prep for you to worry about.

If you like this cut you should also try our organic ox cheeks.

It's amazing how many cuts of meat have become obscure in recent decades. In pre-industrialised Britain, we were a nation of smallholders and pigs would commonly have been fattened up through the summer then slaughtered and preserved for use through the winter. Every bit of the carcass had value and pieces that we don't consider prime these days – like pork cheeks – would have been prized. But because supermarkets aren't butchers, over the years they've found it easier to sell just joints of meat and mince up the fiddly bits. As butchers, at Coombe Farm Organic we champion the obscure bits and encourage you to seek them out. They really are worth rediscovering.

Product FAQs

  • We deliver our organic produce Tuesday – Saturday and you will be able to choose your preferred delivery day at checkout. The delivery charge is £3.95.

  • Freezing is the most natural way of preserving food. And as here at Coombe Farm Organic we believe in slow-grown, healthy food, a form of preservation that doesn’t need artificial additives gets a big tick from us.

    We use blast freezing to preserve all of our meat products. It’s done at the point of butchery, to temperatures of -26°C. This locks in all the freshness, flavour and nutritional value and means you get the longest possible shelf life at home once you’ve defrosted it.

    It also guarantees it will arrive with you in tiptop condition - confidently delivering fresh meat would be much more challenging.

  • All of our meat is butchered in our in-house butchery by our small team. This means we have full control of what is cut and also means that we can accommodate more requests from our customers.

    You will find any product ingredients on the relevant product pages.

For ultimately tender organic pork cheeks they're best slowly braised. Start by dusting two or three cheeks per person with flour and browning them in a hot pan with a splash of oil. Once browned, remove the cheeks and add chopped onions and leeks to the pan with a knob of butter. Fry gently until softened, then add a good splosh of honey, a handful of woody herbs and equal parts white wine and chicken or pork stock. Return the meat to the pan, put it into a low oven and cook for at least two hours. Once cooked, remove the meat, bring the sauce to a boil on the hob until reduced and thickening. Add a generous glug of cream before serving with the cheeks alongside vibrant greens and parmesan mash.
