Pork Cheeks With White Beans

  2. 2. PORK CHEEKS WITH WHITE BEANS <ul><li>Ingredients for 4 servings: 300 grs white dry beans, 4 pork cheeks, 100 grs fresh bacon, 1 onion, 4 ripe tomatoes, 2 green peppers, 1 garlic head, 2 thyme springs, 1 bay leaf, 1 carrot, 1 leek, some parsley, olive oil and salt. </li></ul><ul><li>The night before, have the beans in cold water (double their height). </li></ul><ul><li>Have a big casserole with some olive oil in its bottom and fry the bacon and cheeks (salted) until they get golden. </li></ul>
  3. 3. PORK CHEEKS WITH WHITE BEANS <ul><li>Once they are golden take away from the casserole and reserve in a plate. </li></ul><ul><li>Cut the onion and convert the ripe tomatoes into a sauce (no peels) and start a sofrito. </li></ul>
  4. 4. PORK CHEEKS WITH WHITE BEANS <ul><li>In the same oil you cooked the cheeks and bacon, throw the onion and once it’s transparent add the tomatoes sauce. Have the heat medium/low and keep on stirring until you get the perfect sofrito: Tomatoe seems to dissapear and it gets oily again (see pictures in Power Point to get a better view). </li></ul>
  5. 5. PORK CHEEKS WITH WHITE BEANS <ul><li>Take the cheeks and bacon back to the casserole and stir so that all flavours mix (1 minute). </li></ul><ul><li>Then add cold mineral water till you cover the cheeks and then add the strained beans, the peppers, carrot, garlic head, leek, thyme and bay leaf. Don’t add salt!!!! The beans could become too hard and not soft at all. We want them to be very soft. </li></ul>
  6. 6. PORK CHEEKS WITH WHITE BEANS <ul><li>It’s no good for the beans to boil, so we will keep the casserole hot, nearly boiling for 3 hours, if anytime, you see it boiling, add some cold water to stop the process. </li></ul><ul><li>When beans are new and not from last years’ maybe they will be cooked in 2 hours, just keep an eye on them. 2 Minutes before turning off the heat, add salt to your taste. </li></ul><ul><li>Prepare the dish with the green pepper, beans, cheek without the bone and some sauce. </li></ul>
