Preparation of pork cheeks in Porto sauce

  1. When you buy the cheeks it is important that you ask the butcher to clean them, since you have to remove both the fat and the tendons. When you get home, salt and pepper and reserve.
  2. While your meat is seasoning, peel the onions, the leeks, the garlic and cut them into squares. Wash the pepper and tomatoes, extract the seeds and cut them too. Peel the carrots, slice and reserve.
  3. Spread the flour on a plate and cover the cheeks. Shake well to remove the excess. Add four tablespoons of olive oil in a pot and when hot put the cheeks to seal for four minutes on both sides, this way you will be juicy inside. Set aside a dish.
  4. In the same pot, put the onion, the garlic, the pepper, the carrots, the leek, the tomatoes, the garlic and a sprig of rosemary for five minutes.
  5. Then pour the Oporto, broth, cheeks, honey, a little salt and cook with the pot covered over low heat for two hours. Remove occasionally.
  6. Once your rails are ready, remove them to a plate and pour the vegetables in a bowl to be able to beat them comfortably until you get a homogeneous sauce.
  7. Return the sauce and the cheeks to the pot, give them a boil and get ready to enjoy some succulent pork cheeks in a Porto sauce decorated with parsley leaves.
  • If you have an express pot, in 25 minutes your meat will have softened.
