A question about a recipe: Barbacoa Beef Cheek Tacos

E7028b8d 7a66 4968 8625 fc9ebbc5fb57  012610f 1023

I have a question about the recipe "Barbacoa Beef Cheek Tacos" from aargersi. Abbie, hope you're still around, I haven't seen you lately. I'm wondering how you think this would turn out with pork cheeks. I received a pound of them in my meat CSA. I've cooked many a beef cheek, but never pork. In my head, this recipe sounds like a good way to go.

Hi Susan I am here! I think they would be great with pork - and now I am a little jealous :-) Not sure if it would affect the cook time - I have never (gasp!) cooked pork cheeks.

I'm going to do a little research on cook time. Serious Eats has two recipes and each one says 2.5-3 hours, so I'll go from there. I'll keep a close eye on them. I'll be sure to let you know how it turns out. So excited!! Pork Cheeks from heritage breed pastured pork.

Abbie, I just put my pork cheeks Barbacoa in the oven. Is it to be fully covered or partially covered? I have it slightly ajar.

I answered my question by reading the comments. :) Turned out beautifully!! Can't wait for dinner. My ten month old granddaughter had some bites and went crazy with happiness.
