Pork is an all-time favorite meat. In some countries, only certain parts of the pig are consumed, but in many parts of the world, the culinary tradition has evolved so that no part of the pig is wasted.

For this delicious recipe, I used pisngi ng baboy, or pig's cheeks. The cheeks are characterized by a combination of fat and meat that creates a marbling texture. Unlike a regular cut of pork, cheeks are more tender—and they are cheaper, as well.

For this recipe, I added button mushrooms, though you may choose to use any type of mushroom. I also added oyster sauce for extra flavor.
