So, what is jowl?

Jowl is a succulent and flavorful cut of meat taken from the cheek and jaw of a pig. It is a popular ingredient in many regional cuisines around the world, including Italian, Southern American, and Asian. Jowl is characterized by its rich marbling, which gives it a melt-in-your-mouth texture and a bold, meaty taste. It is often used in slow-cooked dishes like stews and braises, where its natural fattiness adds depth and complexity to the flavors. Jowl can also be cured and smoked to make bacon, a popular breakfast food with a distinctively smoky and savory flavor.
