Crispy Pork Jowl Buns

Crispy Pork Jowl Buns

The last time I went to the Somerville Winter Market (FYI – there are 2 more Saturdays before it’s over for the year!) I was lucky enough to find Pork Jowl at the Austin Brothers Farm stand. I have a history with Austin Brothers, I actually drove out to their farm in Belchertown, MA to buy pork belly when I made my own panchetta. I knew I had to buy the jowl and figure out what to do with it later. Don’t you love impulse buys? A craving for pork buns a few days later was all I needed to get going with this recipe.

Last Friday, Mandi was away and I had a friend coming over
to play Mario Kart before we headed out for the night.  I wanted to throw something simple on the
grill, but I also wanted something awesome. 
Not just a steak or burger, something a little different.  The idea hit me at about 3pm out of nowhere
and I ran with it.
