An Iberian delicacy

Exquisite and easy to prepare, very nutritious, usually with tasty Iberian pork, with a fibrous texture, somewhat gelatinous, juicy and very tender, with a touch of the chosen wine flavour and its suitable vegetables and spices, the pork cheek is undoubtedly one of the most accepted Sevillian tapas.
