Mangalitsa Cheeks are usually about 0.2-0.39 lbs. per package.
Yes, these are exactly what their name implies. The cut is 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.
