Guanciale

Cured pork jowl rubbed with black pepper.

Quick Overview:

Unctuous and silky – the sexier version of bacon. If it ain't Guanciale, it ain't Bucatini all'Amatriciana.

Quick Facts

Origin: United States
Animal Type: Pig
Size: .5 lb.   

The Flavor Experience

Smoother and more lush than bacon, as it is made with the rich, fatty cut of pork jowl.  Cured simply with a mix of herbs and spices, the pork flavor comes through with all of the savory notes.

Usage Tips

Guanciale is traditionally used in Bucatini all'Amatriciana, but you can really use it in lieu of bacon in any application.  Render the fat and use it to cook just about any vegetable, or make a roux from it as a base for mac and cheese sauce.

Straight From the Monger’s Mouth
"I love Guanciale. There is something about the jowl that produces a richer, lusher fat than what is found in pork belly. I cube this up and use it to start pasta sauces all the time." — Hunter F., CCP & Overall Cultured Chap

    I love cooking but had not run into guanciale until I tasted it used in a snap pea recipe. The flavor is so complex without being overwhelming. I had a "salt flavor " but is not overwhelming as bacon can sometimes give. It is all about flavor! Guanciale will be my new favorite "go to"
    whenever a "fat " is called for. Thank you for introducing me to something so special. It arrived beautifully packaged...it will last a good while. a great cooking find!
