Kurobuta Jowls

Also known as Berkshire Pork, but this stuff is the real deal. No cross breeds or 90 % berk, and 10% something else, this is the kobe beef of pork meat. Pigs cheeks are generally all fat with a few nasty glands in them, but these have some serious marbling of meat throughout. They run about 15 dollars a lb, not cheap by any means. I have them brining and will confit them tomorrow. I'm thinking of pairing them with some kimchee'd spanish onion, fava's, and perhaps some morels if the price comes down next week.

Drool.

Those look incredibly succulent, even while raw!

do you think it is necessary to brine something as nice and fatty as this?

yes and no. i needed to brine them becuse i didn't have time to deal with them right away, plus it improves flavor and keeps the colour nice. :)

I was so so happy and I'm still very happy, don't give up! I suggest you view the free videos that tell you what to do on saveabreakup.com

I loved this post. You describe this topic adequately. When hiring home contractors it truly is factor to go with a trusted name in construction. Experienced and efficient staff should shoot for excellence and pay close attention to every detail of your property.
