Mangalitsa Cheeks are usually about 16 oz. per package.

Yes, these are exactly what their name implies. The cut is relatively lean but still tender and loaded with flavor. Like ham hocks, pork cheeks have a lot of connective tissue and collagen, but when they are cooked for a long time, the meat breaks down and softens. The cheeks lend themselves to braising and are a great addition to a ragu. While the cheeks don't provide too much meat (they each weigh about a third of a pound), the meat is rich and worth seeking out.
