I Made A Lot Of People On Facebook Drool!

I made this "Humba" or Pork Braised in vinegar, soy sauce and brown sugar yesterday! I uploaded it on facebook afterwards and made a lot of people drool on there. It's not because they don't know how to cook this dish but it's because of the meat that I used to cook it. You see, it is very seldom that you find pork with skin and fat still attached because a lot of Americans do not eat it!

We (Filipinos) are used to eating this kind of meat back home, so everybody gets excited if they find this rare meat! I actually used Hog Jowls to cook this dish. Hog Jowls is a season pork meat usually use to cook in greens or beans to season it. It's not available all the time but only probably once a year during New Year time! I've been wanting to try cooking "Humba" using Hog Jowls and yesterday I finally did it. It's not bad actually, the meat is already seasoned and I think it is smoked too if I'm not mistaken!

Anyway, a couple of my friends on Facebook asking where did I get the meat, I haven't replied to them yet. I am sure they'll be surprised if I tell them that it is just a seasoning meat! It is very cheap too, so it really worked well to my advantage! Next time I'm going to the grocery store, I'll be buying a lot of it to have in stock for they won't be available for long. And I also want to try making soup out of it!
